Ex-Marshall football player named in heroin conspiracy indictment

A former Marshall football player has been named in a heroin conspiracy indictment.

According to the Herald-Dispatch, ex-Herd safety Tiquan Lang was among 11 people who a grand jury alleges conspired to distribute a quantity of heroin. Lang was dismissed from the program after being arrested on DUI and gun charges in April.

Per the report:

The 11-count indictment, returned by a Grand Jury on Dec. 13 in Huntington alleges that at times between November 2014 to June 8, 2016, Mark Steven Bush, Brandon R. Ware, Derrick C. Morris, Charles Deshawn Lockhart, Tiquan R. Lang, Kieyonda Annette-Marie Toler, Dorothy D. Pannell and Jessica Ann Barnett, conspired to distribute a quantity of heroin.

The indictment alleges Bush, Ware, Morris and Lockhart conspired to distribute more than 100 grams of heroin.

No further details regarding Lang’s involvement — including whether he was on the Herd roster at the time of his involvement — where made available at the time of the initial release.
