SCRANTON - The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that a Monroe County man was sentenced today to 41 months’ imprisonment by Senior United States District Judge Edwin M. Kosik for participating in a methamphetamine trafficking conspiracy.

According to United States Attorney Peter Smith, Emmanuel Tucker, age 39, of Stroudsburg, Monroe County, pleaded guilty in May 2015 to the charge of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.

Tucker was one of seven individuals indicted by a federal grand jury in April 2014 after a several month investigation conducted jointly by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Pennsylvania State Police, the Pocono Mountain Regional Police Department and the Stroud Regional Police Department regarding methamphetamine trafficking in Monroe County.

Previously, Scott Borushak, age 51, of Stroudsburg, and Fred Baumgartner, age 34, of Kresgeville, pleaded guilty and admitted to participating in the same methamphetamine trafficking conspiracy.  The charges against the remaining defendants are currently pending.

In addition to the prison term, Senior Judge Kosik also ordered that Tucker be supervised by a probation officer for three years following his release from prison.

The cases are being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Robert J. O’Hara.
