Columbus artist Jenny Fine says her camera has become a tool for facilitating intimacy between herself and her family, and nowhere is that more evident than in her “Flat Granny” series, soon to be on view at the Dublin Arts Council. The artist photographed her grandmother during the last ten years of her life.
Columbus Detective Indicted On Drug And Gun Charges
A Columbus police detective has been indicted on charges that he provided armed security for a man picking up a call full of heroin.
Stevie Billups was arrested in July on charges of attempted distribution of heroin and carrying a gun during a drug-trafficking crime. Billups has been on unpaid leave since his arrest.
Investigators say Billups met a suspected drug dealer several times at Hollywood Casino Columbus. The drug suspect was later arrested, and prosecutors say he let police listen in on a call where Billups agreed to take $5,000 in exchange for protection in a drug payment and a drug pickup.
Billups was arrested after the second incident.
Billups’ attorney claimed shortly after the July arrest that his client has a gambling problem and was a victim of entrapment.
