A Greene County grand jury indicted Hoyt last week on seven felony drug charges, one felony weapons charge and two felony charges of receiving stolen property, police said. 

Hoyt was arrested on July 23 when Xenia police assisted the Greene County ACE Task Force in a raid at a home in the 200 block of South Columbus Street, according to Xenia police. 

Police said the search turned up cocaine and heroin as well as four handguns and cash. 

Two of the guns were reported stolen, according to police. 

This is the third time Hoyt has been charged as the result of an ACE Task Force investigation.

Hoyt was arrested by Task Force members in 2004 and later pleaded guilty to trafficking and possessing cocaine and possession of criminal tools, according to Greene County court records. Judge Timothy Campbell sentenced Hoyt to five years of community control, including six months jail time and completion of the Green Leaf drug-rehabilitation program, according to court records. 

In 2013, Hoyt was arrested by the task force, and Judge Michael Buckwalter later sentenced him to serve five years of community control as part of a plea agreement in which he pleaded guilty to drug trafficking, a third-degree felony, according to Greene County court records. 

Buckwalter also ordered Hoyt to attend parenting classes, complete a chemical dependency evaluation and treatment and pay $440 to the ACE Task Force “as reimbursement for drug buy money,” according to court records. 

Hoyt is scheduled to appear again in Buckwalter’s courtroom as part of a pre-trial hearing later this month. A possible jury trial is scheduled for October.
