Two Trenton Men Indicted In Fentanyl Conspiracy

Two Trenton men face Fentanyl Conspiracy Charges following their indictment by a federal grand jury.  Twenty-four-year-old Troy Lee Palmer and twenty-six-year-old Dallas W. Hughs are charged in a six-count indictment returned under seal by a federal grand jury on March 1, 2022. That indictment has been unsealed following the arrests of Palmer and Hughs on Wednesday and they remain in federal custody pending a detention hearing on March 28th.

The announcement from the US Attorney for the Western District of Missouri says Hughs is not eligible for bond as he was already in state custody on a separate case.

The two men were indicted by a federal grand jury for their roles in a conspiracy to distribute fentanyl in Grundy County, Mo., and elsewhere.

The federal indictment alleges that Palmer and Hughs participated in a conspiracy to distribute 400 grams or more of fentanyl since Oct. 27, 2020.

In addition to the conspiracy, Palmer is charged with one count of possessing fentanyl to distribute in Grundy County on Dec. 8, 2020, and one count of possessing several firearms in furtherance of drug-trafficking crimes.

Hughs is also charged with three counts of distributing fentanyl in Grundy County on separate occasions between Aug. 23 and Sept. 13, 2021.
