Trio indicted by federal grand jury for drug sales
A federal grand jury in Pittsburgh indicted a Plum man and two others for selling large amounts of drugs.
Brandon Winters, 43, of Plum; Eduard Guzman Rijo, 48, of the Dominican Republic; and Erick Alexander Martinez, 33, of Yonkers, New York, are accused of selling heroin, fentanyl, and cocaine, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced.
The two-count indictment issued Monday accused the three of conspiring to traffic and distribute heroin, fentanyl and cocaine.
According to the indictment, in January , Winters, Rijo, and Martinez conspired to possess with intent to distribute and distributed more than 2.2 pounds of heroin, 14 ounces of fentanyl and at least 15 ounces of cocaine.
If convicted, the men could face up to 10 years in prison and fines of up to $10 million or both, the U.S. Attorney’s office said.
