Geiger is the co-defendant in a case involving Myron Baker, a Dayton man previously sentenced to 24 years for selling opioids that results in one deadly overdose and multiple non-fatal overdoses.

Geiger and Baker allegedly conspired with others to get opioids and sell them in Dayton and Gallipolis.

In March 2017, two people bought what they believed was heroin from the co-conspirators in Trotwood, but the substance contained carfentanil, according to the U.S. Southern District of Ohio. Both overdosed after parking at a Dayton-area restaurant and doing the drugs. One of them could not be revived and was pronounced dead the next morning.
