Stroudsburg Man Sentenced To 114 Months’ Imprisonment For Heroin And Cocaine Trafficking

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

 SCRANTON—The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Eddie Pace, age 46, of Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, was sentenced to 114 months’ imprisonment followed by eight years on supervised release on January 8, 2020, by U.S. District Court Judge Malachy E. Mannion, for drug trafficking. The sentence consists of 102 months’ imprisonment for conspiracy and 12 months’ imprisonment for violating supervised release.

According to Acting United States Attorney Bruce D. Brandler, Pace previously pled guilty to participating in the conspiracy during 2012 through March 2015. Pace was a leader of the drug conspiracy and possessed a firearm in connection with the offense. The conspiracy involved over 100 grams of heroin and more than 500 grams of cocaine (quantity of heroin involved in the conspiracy exceeded 4,000 retail bags).

Pace was one of seven defendants charged in the case. Others previously sentenced in the case were:

  • Myron Owens—140 months;
  • Daryl Trent—90 months;
  • Anton Woodson—63 months;
  • William Young—60 months;
  • Shawnette Isaac—30 months; and
  • Catherine Abbey—12 months.

The matter was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Pennsylvania State Police, the Scranton Police Department, and local police in Monroe County. Assistant U.S. Attorney Francis P. Sempa prosecuted the case.

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. The Department of Justice reinvigorated PSN in 2017 as part of the Department’s renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement and the local community to develop effective, locally-based strategies to reduce violent crime.

This case was also brought as part of a district wide initiative to combat the nationwide epidemic regarding the use and distribution of heroin.  Led by the United States Attorney’s Office, the Heroin Initiative targets heroin traffickers operating in the Middle District of Pennsylvania and is part of a coordinated effort among federal, state and local law enforcement agencies to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who commit heroin related offenses.
