Two charged with meth-related felonies


Two men have been charged with Dealing in Methamphetamine and Conspiracy to Deal in Methamphetamine stemming from a routine traffic stop by Aurora Police Sunday, June 10, according to Dearborn County Prosecutor Lynn Deddens.

Ronald L. Clark, 25, and Byron L. Kaminska, 41, face Level 2 Felony charges of Dealing, and Conspiracy to Deal, Methamphetamine, in quantities greater than 10 grams, following their arrest June 10.

The men were stopped by Aurora Police after an officer noticed a broken tail light on the vehicle they were in, and after Clark, who was driving, failed to signal a turn as he drove through town.

The subsequent investigation turned up a total of more than 34 grams of methamphetamine, a scale, numerous small individual plastic baggies, and $268 in cash, according to court documents.

Clark and Kaminska are incarcerated in the Dearborn County Law Enforcement Center, Lawrenceburg. If convicted of the charges, they face from 10 to 30 years in prison.

“Of course, these men are innocent until proven guilty in court,” said Deddens. “However, this is a very serious case. We are committed to aggressive prosecution of these kinds of cases in an effort to get drugs out of our community. I want to thank the Aurora Police Department for the good police work that went into making these arrests.”

No court dates have been set in these cases as yet.

The fact that a person is charged is merely an allegation and the person is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
