Meth Dealing at Florence Mall Lands Man in Prison for 10+ Years

A man who sold methamphetamine at the Florence Mall was sentenced to more than ten years in federal prison.

Ronald Fryman, 38, of Cincinnati, pleaded guilty in May to unlawful distribution of crystal meth. Late last week, U.S. District Judge David Bunning sentenced Fryman to 150 months in prison.

In July, 2016, Fryman sold more than 27 grams of meth to an undercover agent in a parking lot at the Florence Mall.

In September of that year, the Fryman sold another 25.7 grams to an undercover agent at the same spot.

Fryman admitted to distributing at least 50 grams of the drug. 

He had been convicted in 2013 on drug charges in Campbell County.

The investigation was led by the Drug Enforcement Agency.
