WILMINGTON — Twenty-three people were indicted at a recent session of a local grand jury, with most charges drug-related.

Of the drug charges, two locals are charged with complicity to trafficking in fentanyl, and six other people are charged with possessing fentanyl. Last year, there were 16 drug overdose deaths in Clinton County involving fentanyl and its analogs.

Brown pleaded not guilty earlier this month. His bond was set at $250,000 cash or surety (10 percent bond not acceptable), plus a $10,000 own recognizance bond.
