East Stroudsburg Man Sentenced To 46 Months’ In Prison For Drug Trafficking

SCRANTON- The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that on April 11, 2019, United States District Court Judge A. Richard Caputo sentenced Warren Williams, age 25, of East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, to 46 months’ imprisonment for drug trafficking.

According to United States Attorney David J. Freed, Williams distributed over 100 grams of heroin (100 grams of heroin equates to approximately 4,000 individual doses) over a five-month period starting in January 2016, in Monroe County, Pennsylvania.         

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Stroud Area Regional Police Department, and the Pennsylvania State Police. Assistant U.S. Attorney Sean A. Camoni.

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.

This case is also 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.
