(Cleveland) - Four local men were named in a 25-count federal indictment that charges they conspired to distribute at least 220 pounds of marijuana and 345 pills of Oxycodone.

Indicted are Amer Jabir, 37; Ahmad Jabir, 22; Aymen Abdelrahim, 28, and Gerald Knox, 37. 

All four are charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute least 100 kilograms of marijuana and 345 pills of Oxycodone between 2015 and 2018. 

There are additional charges for distribution of marijuana, distribution of Oxycodone, and related charges. 

Agents report, some of the pills and marijuana were sold by Aymen Abdhelrahim, from a gas station on West 25th Street where Abdelrahim worked as a clerk.

Knox (pictured) is charged with possession of a firearm related to drug trafficking and being a felon in possession of a firearm and remains at large. 

There is a reward for information leading to Knox's arrest.  Anyone with knowledge of his whereabouts is urged to call the Cleveland FBI at 216-522-1400.

The indictment also seeks to forfeit more than $2.1 million in cash, five firearms, a 2015 Range Rover, a $5,000 casino poker chip and miscellaneous jewelry seized from locations in Cleveland, North Olmsted and Chicago as part of the investigation.

Investigators claim Amer Jabir was the leader of an organization that brought hundreds of pounds of marijuana from grow operations in California to Chicago and then Cleveland. 

They say the marijuana was hidden in secret trap compartments in vehicles that were then placed in the back of car haulers.
