Fayette County Drug Dealer Sentenced to 9 Years in Prison

PITTSBURGH - A resident of Isabella, Pennsylvania, has been sentenced in federal court to 108 months’ imprisonment and 6 years’ supervised release on his conviction of violating federal narcotics laws, United States Attorney Cindy K. Chung announced today.

United States District Judge Christy Criswell Wiegand imposed the sentence on Cedric Harrison, age 35.

According to information presented to the Court, on or about July 9, 2021, Cedric Harrison possessed a quantity of cocaine with the intent to distribute it and, from in and around June 2020 until July 2021, Harrison conspired with others to possess with intent to distribute and distribute quantities of cocaine and heroin.

Assistant United States Attorneys Yvonne Saadi and Jonathan Lusty prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Pennsylvania State Police, and the Perryopolis Police Department conducted the investigation that led to the prosecution of Cedric Harrison.

This prosecution is a result of an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) investigation. OCDETF identifies, disrupts, and dismantles high-level drug traffickers, money launderers, gangs, and transnational criminal organizations that threaten communities throughout the United States.  OCDETF uses a prosecutor-led, intelligence-driven, multi-agency approach that leverages the strengths of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies against criminal networks.
