Garfield Couple Charged with Distributing Heroin, Fentanyl and Fentanyl Analogue

PITTSBURGH, PA – A superseding indictment against Quinshawn Haynie and Dara Haynie has been returned by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh for conspiring to distribute and distributing heroin, butyryl fentanyl, and fentanyl in, on, or within 1,000 feet of a playground and a public housing facility, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today.

The superseding indictment charges Quinshawn Haynie, age 29, and Dara Haynie, age 27, both of Pittsburgh, PA, with committing the crimes from February 1, 2017, through March 31, 2017.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of 60 years in prison and a fine of up to $3,000,000. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal histories, if any, of the defendants.

Assistant United States Attorney Craig W. Haller is prosecuting this case on behalf of the United States.

The Pittsburgh Bureau of Police, the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, and the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole conducted the investigation leading to the superseding indictment in this case.

A superseding indictment is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
