BOSTON – A Boston man with ties to the Orchard Park housing development in Roxbury was sentenced to more than nine years in federal prison on Friday, Oct. 8, 2021 for drug trafficking and firearm offenses.

Lyndon Scott, 32, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Patti B. Saris to 117 months in prison and three years of supervised release. On May 20, 2021, Scott pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute cocaine base, being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition and possession of a firearm during and in relation to a drug trafficking offense.  Scott also received an 18-month concurrent sentence for violating his terms of federal supervised release.

In September 2019, investigators conducted a search of Scott’s vehicle and recovered approximately 17 grams of crack cocaine packaged for sale and a Taurus 9-millimeter pistol loaded with 13 rounds of 9-millimeter ammunition from a hidden compartment in the center console of his car. Additional cocaine and drug trafficking paraphernalia were recovered from Scott’s apartment.

Scott was previously convicted on two occasions for unlawful possession of a loaded firearm, making this conviction his third firearm-related offense. At the time of his arrest, Scott was on supervised release for a 2017 federal conviction for cocaine distribution near a housing development.

Acting United States Attorney Nathaniel R. Mendell; James Ferguson, Special Agent in Charge of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Boston Field Division; Suffolk County Sheriff Steven W. Tompkins; and Boston Police Acting Commissioner Gregory Long made the announcement. Assistant U.S. Attorney Christopher Pohl of Mendell’s Narcotics and Money Laundering Unit prosecuted the case.
