Federal prosecutors have said the arrests of, and charges against, Bogle and Pope were integral to the disruption of what they called a significant Dayton-based narcotics ring.
In all, prosecutors announced charges against 19 people in the alleged trafficking conspiracy they said distributed kilogram-quantities of Fentanyl and other drugs across Southwestern Ohio and other states.
“This organization was based here in Dayton,” U.S. District Attorney Benjamin Glassman said in a press conference in Dayton last month. “They used 13 residences throughout the greater Dayton area to process, store and distribute drugs and cash proceeds. But its reach was far beyond Dayton.”
“This was a Dayton-based, poly-drug-trafficking organization led by Crawford Bogle and Savon Pope,” Jimenez also said last month. “This organization distributed multiple-kilogram quantities of Fentanyl, heroin, methamphetamine and cocaine on a monthly basis throughout Southwestern Ohio.”

A message seeking comment was sent Tuesday to Pope’ defense counsel, Dayton attorney Kiriakos Kordalis.
Recently, Kordalis moved to have the court produce statements by prosecution witnesses against his client, including “rough notes” and summaries of interviews with the witnesses.
Kordalis has also sought a “bill of particulars” against his client, a document detailing crimes prosecutors say Pope has committed.
