A Lucasville car dealer has been sentenced to 14 years in prison for his part in a multi-state drug operation.


Judge William T. Marshall accepted a guilty plea from Marty S. Fitzgerald, 34, for selling Oxycodone pills. Fitzgerald entered a guilty plea to three counts of felony drug trafficking for his involvement in a multi-state operation to transport and distribute pain pills containing Oxycodone from Detroit, Michigan to southern Ohio.


Fitzgerald, who also owned the used car lot known as Marty’s Auto Sales, was investigated by the Southern Ohio Drug Task Force which began by making recorded buys from Fitzgerald using confidential informants. Upon arresting Fitzgerald in May of this year, following the purchase of 100, 30-milligram Oxycodone pills, Fitzgerald directed Scioto County Sheriff’s detective John Koch, to over 1,800 additional Oxycodone pills.


The state of Ohio was represented by Scioto County Prosecutor Mark Kuhn.


“The arrest of Fitzgerald and others involved in this scheme has led to a significant decrease in the availability of Oxycodone on the street,” Kuhn said.


Fitzgerald is currently lodged in the Scioto County Jail awaiting transport to the Ohio prison system.
