Taylor Devaughn White honked the horn of his white Chevrolet Impala and motioned for two men in another car to follow him off Salem Avenue onto a side street.
White allegedly handed the men three gel caps of suspected fentanyl and a phone number. Eight more times from November 2016 until January 2017, White allegedly sold heroin and/or fentanyl to the two men.
The men were both Dayton (OH) police officers — one a detective and the other a task force member for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, according to a criminal affidavit filed in Dayton’s U.S. District Court.
White, 23, was indicted Thursday on 13 counts related to drug trafficking and weapons charges.
The complaint said White sold drugs to the officers in various locations around Dayton. The 226 heroin capsules tested positive for fentanyl, according to the Miami Valley Regional Crime Lab.
