A Toledo man was charged in a 14-count federal indictment with conspiring to distribute carfentanil, fentanyl and heroin.
Antoine Neal, aka Antoinne Neal, 40, conspired with others and sold fentanyl, heroin, carfentanil and crack cocaine between June and October 2017, according to the indictment.
Neal sold more than 26 grams of carfentanil over 10 days in 2017, according to the indictment.
“This defendant sold enough carfentanil to kill thousands of people, not to mention the other deadly drugs he sold,” U.S. Attorney Justin Herdman said.
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.
This case was investigated jointly by members of the Toledo Police Department, the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The case is being handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Alissa M. Sterling.
An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
