Ohio Man Sentenced To 10 Years In Prison

FORT WAYNE—Dan I. Wilson, 47, of Akron, Ohio, was sentenced before United States District Court Judge Holly Brady upon his plea of guilty to conspiring to possess with intent to distribute 1 kilogram or more of heroin and 5 kilograms or more of cocaine, announced United States Attorney Kirsch. 

Mr. Wilson received a sentence of 120 months of imprisonment, followed by 5 years of supervised release.

According to documents filed in this case, from on or about January 2013 and continuing to March 2015, Mr. Wilson conspired with others to acquire cocaine and heroin from a drug organization operating primarily in the Northern District of Indiana for further distribution in Ohio.  

This case is part of an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) investigation. OCDETF identifies, disrupts, and dismantles the highest-level drug traffickers, money launderers, gangs, and transnational criminal organizations that threaten the United States by using a prosecutor-led, intelligence-driven, multi-agency approach that leverages the strengths of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies against criminal networks.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Fort Wayne Safe Streets Gang Task Force, which includes the FBI, the Indiana State Police, the Allen County Sheriff’s Department, and the Fort Wayne Police Department.  The Akron, Ohio, Police Department also assisted with this investigation. This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Anthony Geller.
