June 23, 2014


St. Louis, MO –   ELIJAH BOYKINS of St. Louis, Missouri, was sentenced to 33 months imprisonment for possession with the intent to distribute heroin.  Boykins appeared before Judge Henry E. Autrey in U.S. District Court in St. Louis.

According to his March plea agreement, St. Louis police found approximately one ounce of heroin divided into more than 100 doses at Boykins’ home in St. Louis while executing a search warrant on February 10, 2014.  Additionally, more than $3,000 in cash was found and was forfeited as part of the plea agreement. Boykins, who was on federal supervised release for a 2007 weapons offense, also had his supervision revoked in that case as a result of the new case.

The case was investigated by the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department.  Tom Albus handled the case for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
