INDIANAPOLIS — For several years a Greenwood man has been a suspect, victim, and witness to numerous violent crimes in Indianapolis while trafficking drugs, said the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Investigators believe that Eric Middlebrook used several people to get meth and other drugs from California to Indiana. He would then sell the drugs around Indy, and used several locations, including a rented storage unit to store drugs, money, and guns.

When Middlebrook’s home and storage unit were searched more than 3700 grams of meth, fentanyl, several guns, and more than $40,000 were found. When his home was searched three children were living there.

“Middlebrook was using firearms and threats of violence to further his drug trafficking operation, and clearly endangering the community, including children living in the same home. We are committed to working with our local, state, and federal partners to follow the gun and remove the most violent criminals from our streets,” said Roland H. Herndon, Jr., Special Agent in Charge of ATF’s Columbus Field Division.

On Wednesday, it was announced that Middlebrook would be sentenced to 20 years in prison for drug dealing.
