Toledo man indicted for conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute heroin and fentanyl

A Toledo man was indicted for conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute heroin and fentanyl. 

Donald Fuller, 49, possessed with the intent to distribute at least one kilogram of heroin and at least 400 grams of fentanyl between 2016 and 2019, according to the indictment.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after reviewing factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation. In all cases the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.

The investigating agency in this case is the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Toledo Police Department and the Toledo Metro Drug Task Force.  The case is being handled by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Ashley A. Futrell and Alissa M. Sterling.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. Defendants are entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
