SCRANTON – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that on June 27, 2019, United States District Court Judge James Munley sentenced Raymond Collazo, age 34, to four months of imprisonment, for escaping from federal custody.

According to United States Attorney David J. Freed, Collazo was a federal inmate at Schuylkill Federal Prison Camp (FCI Schuylkill), where he was serving a 130-month sentence for heroin trafficking and firearms offenses.  Collazo absconded on March 15, 2018, but returned to custody shortly thereafter.  Judge Munley imposed the four-month sentence to run consecutively to Collazo’s existing sentence.

The case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service and by Officers with FCI Schuylkill.  Assistant United States Attorney Phillip J. Caraballo prosecuted the case.
