Four Charged In Multistate Pharmacy Burglary Conspiracy

           GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN — United States Attorney Andrew Birge announced today that four men were indicted by a grand jury on federal charges for conspiring to distribute controlled substances and conspiring to break into pharmacies to steal controlled substances.

          The indictment alleges that Keonta Anthony (22 years old), William Anthony (24 years old), Dajohn Davis (22 years old), and Donald Beauchamp (33 years old) broke into, and attempted to break into, pharmacies on at least 14 occasions in 2020 and 2021 in order to steal controlled substances, including fentanyl, oxycodone, morphine, and others.  The pharmacies were in Michigan, West Virginia, Kentucky, Iowa, and Minnesota.  All four defendants are from the Detroit metropolitan area.

          Each defendant is charged with conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute controlled substances (punishable by up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $1,000,000) and conspiracy to commit burglary involving controlled substances (punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000).

          The charges in the indictment are merely accusations and are not evidence of guilt. The defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law. The government has the burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Actual sentences for federal crimes are typically less than the maximum penalties provided by law. Upon conviction, a federal district court judge will determine any sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

          These charges are part of an investigation conducted by the Drug Enforcement Administration Tactical Diversion Squad, Ingham County Sheriff’s Department, Jackson County Sheriff’s Department, Eaton County Sheriff’s Department, Grand Ledge Police Department, Livonia Police Department, Michigan State Police, Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety, and several other out-of-state police departments.
