Stroudsburg Man Sentenced To 80 Months’ Imprisonment For Heroin And Fentanyl Trafficking
SCRANTON – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that on February 9, 2023, United States District Judge Robert D. Mariani sentenced Malik Adoyi, age 25, of Stroudsburg, PA, to 80 months of imprisonment and a 4-year term of supervised release, for conspiracy to distribute over 100 grams of heroin and over 40 grams of fentanyl.
According to United States Attorney Gerard M. Karam, from July through November 2021, either personally or through a co-conspirator, Adoyi distributed over 100 grams of a substance containing heroin and fentanyl, in several instances in the area near Stroudsburg High School. The approximately 110 grams of fentanyl distributed by Adoyi corresponds to approximately 4,400 doses of the potentially lethal substance.
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and its state and local law enforcement partners in Monroe County, Pennsylvania. Assistant United States Attorney Jeffery St John 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 gun violence, and to make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. On May 26, 2021, the Department launched a violent crime reduction strategy strengthening PSN based on these core principles: fostering trust and legitimacy in our communities, supporting community-based organizations that help prevent violence from occurring in the first place, setting focused and strategic enforcement priorities, and measuring the results.
This case was also 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.
