Ten people were arrested following a recent investigation by state officials into a massive marijuana drug ring based out of Butler.
A grand jury recommended charges against Macklin Haye and Savannah Blust of Karns City for running a drug organization between September of 2016 and October of 2018 that included his parents, Jon and Angela Haye—who allegedly received packages of marijuana from out of state.
Haye and Blust reported a home invasion to police in June of 2017 that resulted in the discovery of marijuana and marijuana packaging products. Upon Macklin Haye’s arrest, police found that his father, Jon Haye, continued the operation out of his Ridge Drive home in Karns City.
Further investigation by police led to the arrest of six other individuals involved in the drug ring. Bradley Wiles and Marlee Haye of Kittanning, William Blust III of Slippery Rock, David Negrin of Slippery Rock, Corey Eiler of Chicora, Colton McIllwain of Saxonburg, and Jarrett Lavan of Butler.
