Washington County Man Sentenced for Role in Drug Trafficking Organization

PITTSBURGH, PA - A Washington County resident has been sentenced in federal court to 41 months’ imprisonment followed by five years of supervised release on his conviction of federal narcotics charges, United States Attorney Cindy K. Chung announced today.

Chief United States District Judge Mark R. Hornak imposed the sentence on Eugene Reddick, 39, formerly Dunlevy, PA 15321.

According to information presented to the court, Reddick conspired with other persons to distribute powder cocaine in Clairton, Pennsylvania, between 2015 and 2017. Reddick acquired the cocaine from Jamie Lightfoot, Jr. and other members of Lightfoot’s drug trafficking organization.

Assistant United States Attorney Shaun E. Sweeney prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.

United States Attorney Chung commended the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Pennsylvania State Police, with assistance from the South Strabane Police Department, the Elizabeth Borough Police Department, the Penn Hills Police Department, and the Perryopolis Police Department, for the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of Reddick.

This sentencing was the 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.
