PITTSBURGH - A resident of Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, has been sentenced in federal court to 150 months imprisonment and 5 years of supervised release on his conviction of violating federal narcotics laws, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today.
Senior United States District Judge Arthur J. Schwab imposed the sentence on Anthony Taylor, age 35.
According to information presented to the court, from 2016 to August 30, 2017 Taylor participated in a conspiracy to distribute substantial quantities of fentanyl and cocaine, mainly in the Beaver Falls area. On August 3, 2017, Taylor sold fentanyl to a confidential informant. On August 30, 2017, agents from the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s office, from the Beaver Falls Police Department, and law enforcement officers from other law enforcement agencies executed a search warrant at Taylor’s home. During that search, law enforcement seized more than 40 grams of fentanyl, approximately 10 grams of cocaine, adulterants, packaging material, a digital scale, more than $10,000 in cash, and cellular telephones.
Assistant United States Attorney Brendan T. Conway and Lee J. Karl prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.
United States Attorney Brady commended the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office, in conjunction with the Beaver Falls Police Department, the New Brighton Police Department and the Pennsylvania State Police for the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of Taylor.
