Man Sentenced Prison for Role in Heroin Trafficking Conspiracy

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Eastern District of Virginia

A Richmond man was sentenced today to 10 years in prison for conspiring to distribute heroin in the Central Virginia region and making a false declaration to a federal Grand Jury.

According to court documents, from approximately 2015 through October 2017, Gregory Stacey, 38, participated in a multi-state heroin trafficking conspiracy. As part of the conspiracy, Stacey brokered multiple drug deals between a New York source of supply and two Central Virginia area drug dealers. In addition, Stacey arranged meetings between co-conspirators, assisted in the transportation of the New York source of supply to drug deals, assisted in the packaging of heroin, and distributed heroin on behalf of his co-conspirators. During the course of the conspiracy, Stacey distributed between one and three kilograms of heroin.     

In October 2017, the United States subpoenaed Stacey to testify before the federal Grand Jury in the Eastern District of Virginia. While under oath at the federal Grand Jury, Stacey made a false material declaration about his co-conspirator’s possession of heroin.

G. Zachary Terwilliger, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, and Jesse R. Fong, Special Agent in Charge for the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) Washington Field Division, made the announcement after sentencing by Senior U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Erik S. Siebert and Peter S. Duffey prosecuted the case.
