GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The man named a person of interest in a Kalamazoo death has been indicted on a federal drug charge.
Anthony Ozomaro of Kalamazoo faces a count of possession of meth with intent to distribute.
According to a document filed in federal court last week, investigators say they found crystal meth, a digital scale and ammunition when they searched Ozomaro’s home on Florence Street near N. Westnedge Avenue. A Drug Enforcement Administration agent said the amount of meth found indicated Ozomaro was dealing.
The search happened after Ozomaro was arrested after a police chase and standoff and on a bond violation following the death of his former girlfriend.
Police have referred to Ozomaro as a person of interest, but haven’t called him a suspect and haven’t charged him in connection to Riojas’ death.
He does face a charge for fleeing and eluding police.
