New York Man Sentenced for Crack Cocaine and Heroin Trafficking

Bangor, Maine:  A Bronx, New York man was sentenced today in federal court in Bangor for distributing cocaine base (a/k/a crack cocaine) and heroin, U.S. Attorney Halsey B. Frank announced.

U.S. District Judge Lance E. Walker sentenced Leanza Boney, a/k/a “G,” 22, to 57 months in prison and three years of supervised release. Boney pleaded guilty on October 3, 2019.

According to court records, on March 22, 2019, Boney distributed crack and heroin to an undercover agent. At the time of the offense, Boney was on state probation following his conviction for a 2018 drug trafficking offense.

The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, the FBI, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, the Hancock and Washington County Sheriff’s Offices and the Maine State Police investigated the case.

The prosecution is a result of the ongoing efforts by the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) Program, a partnership between federal, state and local law enforcement agencies.  The OCDETF mission is to identify, investigate and prosecute high-level members of drug trafficking enterprises, bringing together the combined expertise and unique abilities of federal, state and local law enforcement.
