PITTSBURGH - A resident of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of violating federal narcotics laws, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today.

The two-count Indictment named Montay Clancy, 23, as the sole defendant.

According to the Indictment, on October 3, 2019, Clancy was found to be in possession of at least 500 grams of cocaine, a Schedule II controlled substance, and a mixture containing a detectable amount of heroin, a Schedule I controlled substance.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of not less than five years and not more than 40 years in prison, a fine of not more than $5,000,000.00, a period of supervised release of at least three years, or a combination thereof. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant United States Attorney Michael Leo Ivory is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The United States Postal Inspection Service conducted the investigation leading to the Indictment in this case.

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