Pittsburgh man gets 18 months in federal prison for selling drugs
A Pittsburgh man was sentenced Thursday in federal court to serve 33 months in prison for selling drugs and violating terms of his earlier release.
According to a federal court press release, Senior U.S. District Judge Donetta W. Ambrose imposed an 18-month sentence on Tory Bryant, 32, for selling drugs and an added 15 months for violating terms of an earlier release.
Prosecutors said that in March, 2018, Bryant possessed quantities of heroin, fentanyl, and crack cocaine. The release did not specify how much of the drugs he had.
An undercover officer arranged to buy narcotics from Bryant, and when officers attempted to arrest Bryant at the transaction scene, Bryant fled.
The officers recovered the narcotics that Bryant intended to sell to the undercover officers on the path of Bryant’s flight, prosecutors said.
Assistant United States Attorney Brendan T. Conway prosecuted the case.
The FBI and Wilkinsburg Police Department investigated.
