Alleged drug dealer to enter change of plea

Wednesday, March 18, 2009

A Stilesville man accused of dealing in a controlled substance will be in court for a change of plea hearing on July 9.

Timothy Calvert, 48, is charged with Class B felony dealing in a schedule II controlled substance and Class D felony possession of a controlled substance.

Calvert failed to appear in court on Feb. 5 for a pretrial conference, and a warrant for his arrest was issued. He turned himself in to authorities later that day, citing medical issues as his reason for missing his court date. On Feb. 6, he was released from jail on his own recognizance.

Calvert was arrested Aug. 6 and had his initial hearing on Aug. 7. He posted a $2,000 bond that day and was released from jail.

The charges against Calvert stem from controlled buys last April during which officers from the Clay County Sheriff's Department and the Brazil City Police Department worked with a confidential informant who allegedly purchased oxycontin from Calvert.

According to court records, that buy took place at a gas station on the northwest corner of U.S. 231 and U.S. 40 in Putnam County.

Calvert has an extensive criminal history in Putnam County, most of it drug-related. He has been convicted of and done jail time for dealing in marijuana, unlawful use of a police radio, operating while intoxicated, possession of marijuana, possession of cocaine or a narcotic drug and dealing in a controlled substance.

All his prior convictions took place between April of 1991 and March of 1996.

Is this the 1979 graduate of Cloverdale High School?
