HARRISBURG – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Dillion Scott Schaffner, a/k/a “Trigger,” age 28, formerly of Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania, was sentenced on October 29, 2021, to 120 months’ imprisonment by United States District Court Judge Christopher C. Conner for conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute 50 grams and more of methamphetamine and 500 grams and more of a mixture and substance containing cocaine hydrochloride from August 2018 until August 2020, in York County, Pennsylvania and elsewhere.

According to Acting United States Attorney Bruce D. Brandler, a joint investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Pennsylvania State Police revealed that Schaffner was trafficking methamphetamine and cocaine in the York and Lancaster County areas. On October 17, 2019, the Lancaster County Drug Task Force executed a search warrant at Schaffner’s residence.  Law enforcement seized approximately 14.38 grams of cocaine, 232.3 grams of marijuana, 67.09 grams of crystal methamphetamine, 3.75 grams of LSD, and 3.08 grams of psilocyn, drug proceeds, and two firearms.

The case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Pennsylvania State Police and the Lancaster County Drug Task Force. Assistant U.S. Attorney Daryl Bloom prosecuted the case.

This case is being prosecuted as part of the joint federal, state, and local Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) Program, the centerpiece of the Department of Justice’s violent crime reduction efforts. PSN is an evidence-based program proven to be effective at reducing violent crime. Through PSN, a broad spectrum of stakeholders work together to identify the most pressing violent crime problems in the community and develop comprehensive solutions to address them. As part of this strategy, PSN focuses enforcement efforts on the most violent offenders and partners with locally based prevention and reentry programs for lasting reductions in crime.
