BUFFALO, NY—U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross announced today that a federal grand jury has returned an indictment charging Aaron Miller, 28, of Jamestown, NY, and La D. Huynh a/k/a Paul a/k/a P, 39, of Chula Vista, CA, with narcotics conspiracy. The charge carries a mandatory minimum penalty of 10 years in prison, a maximum of life, and a $10,000,000 fine. 

Assistant U.S. Attorney Joshua A. Violanti, who is handling the case, stated that according to the indictment, between July 2019, and October 16, 2020, Miller and Huynh are accused of conspiring with others to import methamphetamine, cocaine, heroin, and fentanyl from California to be sold in the Jamestown, NY, area. 

This effort is part of an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF) operation. OCDETF identifies, disrupts, and dismantles the highest-level criminal organizations that threaten the United States using a prosecutor-led, intelligence-driven, multi-agency approach. Additional information about the OCDETF Program can be found at

The indictment is the result of an investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Frank A. Tarentino III, New York Field Division and the Jamestown Police Department, under the direction of Chief Timothy Jackson.

The fact that a defendant has been charged with a crime is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
