Toledo man sentenced to 20 years in prison for trafficking heroin and cocaine and firearms crimes

A Toledo man was sentenced to 20 years in prison for trafficking heroin and cocaine and for firearms crimes.

Cornelius Henry, 44, pleaded guilty earlier this year to 45 counts, including conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute heroin and cocaine, money laundering, being a felon in possession of firearms and maintaining a drug house, among others.

Henry conspired with others from 2011 through 2016 to possess with intent to distribute large amounts of heroin and cocaine. He also possessed at least two firearms despite multiple felony convictions that made it illegal for him to have a firearm. He used the residence at 2214 Airport Highway in Toledo to store and distribute the drugs, according to court documents.

Henry also forfeited two properties on Airport Highway, three firearms and ammunition, six automobiles, one motorcycle and more than $10,000 in cash seized as part of the investigation.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Toledo office, the Internal Revenue Service and the Toledo Metro Drug Task Force. The case is being handled by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Alissa M. Sterling and Michael J. Freeman.
