MENTOR-ON-THE-LAKE Local, state and federal authorities arrested a Mentor-on-the-Lake man yesterday and said he was a major player in a Marijuana distribution ring stretching from Alabama to Ohio.
Zoltan Frank Kovacs, 25, of Lawnfield Rd., faces federal charges of conspiracy to distribute marijuana. Kovacs' arrest is part of an ongoing investigation that included similar busts in Kent and Akron late last year, said Paul Graupmann, acting supervisor of the FBI office in Akron. "It's all part of a large-scale marijuana case," Graupmann said.Kovacs is accused of using his Lake County home as a distribution base for pot brought in from Alabama, said Graupmann, who declined to elaborate further on the operation.In December, federal agents charged Michael T. Lovaty Jr., 28, of Kent, and Frank T. Nichols, 28, of Akron, with federal drug trafficking conspiracy counts after a search of their homes.Graupmann said the pair ran operations in Summit and Portage counties.
