The United States Attorney’s Office announced that 30 year old Myles Davis of Tobyhanna was sentenced yesterday by Senior U.S. District Court Judge A. Richard Caputo to five years’ imprisonment and four years on supervised release for his role in a Monroe County-based heroin and cocaine trafficking conspiracy.
According to United States Attorney David J. Freed, Davis previously pleaded guilty to conspiring with others to distribute between 100 and 400 grams of heroin in the Monroe County area between May and July 2015. The amount of heroin for which Davis was responsible for distributing was equivalent to approximately 4,000 – 16,000 retail bags of heroin.
Davis was one of eleven individuals indicted by a grand jury in July 2015 and charged with conspiring to distribute heroin and cocaine in the Monroe County area. To date, nine defendants have entered guilty pleas.
The case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the Pocono Mountain Regional Police Department. Assistant United States Attorney Robert J. O’Hara is prosecuting the case.
