A Kent State student has been indicted on five counts of trafficking marijuana and one count of possession of criminal tools, Portage County Sheriff Duane Kaley said.

Both charges are fifth-degree felonies.

Chadwick E. Wolfe, 18, was contacted by the Sheriff’s office and informed of the pending charges against him. He turned himself in Monday and was arrested without incident.

Kaley said the Portage County Drug Task Force had been investigating Wolfe for more than a month. Wolfe allegedly sold marijuana to undercover task force agents multiple times.

Wolfe, who lives on campus, has a permanent address in Columbus.

He has been released on a $35,000 personal recognizance bond, Kaley said.

The Portage County Drug Task Force is made up of officers from the Kent, Aurora, Garrettsville and Ravenna police departments as well as members from the county sheriff’s and prosecutor’s offices.
