FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 2, 2011

     The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, announced that a 39-year-old Freeland resident was sentenced Tuesday by Senior U.S. District Court Judge Edwin M. Kosik to serve 18 months in federal prison for participating in a Luzerne County-based heroin trafficking conspiracy during 2005 and 2006.

     According to United States Attorney Peter J. Smith, Anthony Mundo previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute heroin.

     Mundo’s prosecution resulted from an investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the Pennsylvania State Police, and local police from southern Luzerne County. More than 20 drug traffickers were charged as a result of the investigation, and all have pleaded guilty in federal court to drug trafficking crimes. Mundo is the last defendant to be sentenced in the case.

     Judge Kosik also ordered Mundo to serve three years of supervised release after serving his prison sentence, and to pay a special assessment of $100.

     U.S. Attorney Smith noted that the case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Francis P. Sempa.
