Two Harrisburg Men Sentenced For Drug Trafficking Offenses
HARRISBURG- The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Tyquann Langston, age 26, and Donza Brown, age 58, both of Harrisburg, were sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Christopher C. Conner for selling crack cocaine, heroin, and fentanyl, and operating a drug involved premises in Harrisburg from 2019 to August 2019.
According to Acting U.S. Attorney Bruce D. Brandler, on October 22, 2021, Langston was sentenced to 10 years’ imprisonment for his role in a conspiracy to traffick crack cocaine and other drugs in Harrisburg. On October 20, 2021, Brown was sentenced to 37 months’ imprisonment for selling crack cocaine and maintaining a drug involved premises at 1621 Market Street in Harrisburg. The location was the regular subject of drug trafficking, shootings and murders. Donza Brown pled guilty to maintaining this drug involved premises and to trafficking crack cocaine from it.
Members of the conspiracy were affiliated with a music group named “Never Forget Loyalty” or “NFL.” As a part of their drug trafficking operation, the “NFL” posted videos on YouTube which were filmed in various Harrisburg locales. In the videos, members of the group brandished various weapons, flashed cash, and displayed drugs. In a yearlong investigation, ATF and local law enforcement conducted a series of searches. During these searches police recovered a machine gun, assault rifles, and various weapons with extended magazines.
Co-defendants Qushawn Brown, age 30, Wesley Garner, age 28, and Anderson Ortiz, age 22, have pled not guilty to their role in these offenses. They are scheduled for trial in December 2021. Co-defendants Jaionne Miller, age 21, Adieas Johnson, age 33, and Kaleaf Brown, age 26, all of Harrisburg, entered guilty pleas to drug trafficking and weapons offenses and their sentences are pending before the court.
The case was investigated by Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, the Harrisburg Bureau of Police, and the Pennsylvania State Police. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Consiglio.
Indictments and Criminal Informations are only allegations. All persons charged are presumed to be innocent unless and until found guilty in court.
A sentence following a finding of guilt is imposed by the Judge after consideration of the applicable federal sentencing statutes and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.
