SCRANTON – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Danielle Condron, age 35, of White Haven, Pennsylvania, was sentenced yesterday to two years’ probation by United States District Court Judge Robert D. Mariani for conspiracy to deal in explosive materials without a license.

According to United States Attorney Gerard M. Karam, Condron previously pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy.  As part of her guilty plea, Condron admitted that between June 2017 and September of 2018, Condron, along with her two co-defendants, agreed to sell commercial grade fireworks without a license under Chapter 40 of Title 18 of the United States Code.  In total, the conspiracy was responsible for distributing more than 250 pounds of explosives in the form of commercial grade fireworks. 

Condron’s co-defendants, Glen Matra and Kevin Condron, are presently pending trial.

The matter was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Connecticut State Police, and the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Connecticut.  Assistant United States Attorney James Buchanan is prosecuting the case.

Indictments are only allegations. All persons charged are presumed to be innocent unless and until found guilty in court.
