Chambersburg Man Sentenced To 10 Years’ Imprisonment For Drug Trafficking

HARRISBURG - The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Daquan Seabrook, age 25, of Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, was sentenced to 10 years’ imprisonment followed by five years of supervised release by Chief United States District Court Judge John E. Jones III, for drug trafficking.

According to United States Attorney David J. Freed, Seabrook pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute 100 grams and more of heroin in October 2017, in Chambersburg, Franklin County.  One hundred grams of heroin is equivalent to approximately 4,000 individual doses of heroin.

Chief Judge Jones also ordered Seabrook to forfeit $15,000 of cash seized at the time of his arrest.

The case was investigated by the Franklin County Drug Task Force and the Harrisburg Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney James T. Clancy prosecuted the case.

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. The Department of Justice reinvigorated PSN in 2017 as part of the Department’s renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement and the local community to develop effective, locally-based strategies to reduce violent crime.

This case was brought as part of a district wide initiative to combat the nationwide epidemic regarding the use and distribution of heroin.  Led by the United States Attorney’s Office, the Heroin Initiative targets heroin traffickers operating in the Middle District of Pennsylvania and is part of a coordinated effort among federal, state and local law enforcement agencies to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who commit heroin related offenses.
