Former Clairton Resident Sentenced for Distributing Fentanyl and Illegally Possessing Firearms

PITTSBURGH, PA - A former resident of Clairton, Pennsylvania, has been sentenced in federal court to nine years’ imprisonment, followed by 10 years’ supervised release, on his conviction of conspiring to distribute narcotics and unlawful possession of firearms, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today.

United States District Judge Arthur J. Schwab imposed the sentence on Elliot Page, 38.

According to information presented to the court, Page supplied fentanyl to his codefendants, Skyler Carter and Cecil Shields, and others, for further distribution in the Clairton area. Agents seized approximately one kilogram of fentanyl and three firearms during the execution of a federal search warrant at Page’s residence on July 6, 2017. Page had three prior felony drug offenses and was forbidden from possessing a firearm.

Assistant United States Attorney Carolyn J. Bloch prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation led the multi-agency investigation of this case, which also included the Allegheny County Sheriff’s Office, the Allegheny County Police Department, and the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police. The investigation was funded by the federal Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force Program (OCDETF). The OCDETF program supplies critical federal funding and coordination that allows federal and state agencies to work together to successfully identify, investigate, and prosecute major interstate and international drug trafficking organizations and other criminal enterprises.
