Binghamton Man Sentenced to 20 Years in Eddie Block Gang Case
BINGHAMTON, NEW YORK – Anthony Randolph, age 30, of Binghamton, New York, was sentenced today to 20 years in prison and 10 years of post-imprisonment supervised release for engaging in a drug trafficking conspiracy and possessing a firearm and ammunition as a felon.
The announcement was made by United States Attorney Richard S. Hartunian and Vadim D. Thomas, Special Agent in Charge of the Albany Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
In pleading guilty, Randolph admitted that between January 2014 and November 17, 2015, as part of an organization called the “Eddie Block Gang,” he and others conspired to and did acquire cocaine and cocaine base (crack) from a number of supply connections located in Broome County, New York, and also in the New York City area. He admitted that he packaged and stored crack at several locations and residences in Broome County, including his residence in Binghamton. He also admitted to selling crack.
Randolph also admitted that in November 2015, he possessed a Kahr Arms Model P40, .40 caliber pistol along with .40 caliber ammunition in his residence in Binghamton. He was prohibited from possessing the pistol and ammunition because he had two prior felony convictions, both for criminal sale of a controlled substance in Broome County.
This case was investigated by the FBI, Binghamton Police Department, New York State Police and Broome County Drug Task Force, and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Miroslav Lovric.
