Toledo Man Sentenced To Nine Years In Prison For Heroin And Firearms Crimes

A Toledo man was sentenced to more than nine years in prison for drug and firearms convictions, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, and Stephen D. Anthony, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Cleveland office.

United States Senior District Judge James G. Carr sentenced Rashaad J. Doyle, age 30, to 100 months imprisonment, for possessing with intent to distribute approximately 350 grams of heroin and for being a felon in possession of a firearm. 

A federal grand jury returned a two-count indictment against Doyle on October 17, 2012 stemming from the seizure of the heroin and  a rifle recovered from Doyle’s residence on September 21, 2012. 

Doyle was forbidden by law from having a firearm due to previous convictions in Lucas County Common Pleas Court for possession of marijuana, aggravated assault and having weapons while under disability.  

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Thomas P. Weldon and Matthew Spaulding. The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Toledo Police Department and the Toledo Metro Drug Task Force.
