William Sidney Marshall, 37, was indicted by an Athens County grand jury Monday on one count each of possession of cocaine, tampering with records and illegal manufacture of drugs, along with two counts each of trafficking in cocaine and possessing criminal tools, according to a press release by the Athens County Prosecutor’s Office.

The indictment came after Marshall was taken into custody for allegedly providing a fake address to an Adult Parole Authority officer.

Investigators from the prosecutor’s office executed a search warrant at 64 1/2 Franklin Street in Athens on Aug. 31 that found more than 200 grams of suspected cocaine and seized more than $7,000 in cash, the release stated.

Marshall is being held in the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail on a hold by the parole authority.

An arraignment and bond hearing is scheduled for Tuesday.
