Turtle Creek woman gets probation for part in heroin conspiracy
A Turtle Creek woman was sentenced to four years of probation in a federal drug trafficking case, according to the U.S. Attorney in Pittsburgh.
Shyanne Johnson, 27, was the last person sentenced in the conspiracy.
Prosecutors said a June 2016 federal wiretap revealed that Johnson traveled to Mechanicsburg, Pa., to meet with a heroin supplier with plans to bring almost 500 bricks of heroin back to Pittsburgh for distribution by members of the conspiracy.
According to federal records, six members of the conspiracy were sentenced to between 1½ and 12½ years in federal prison. Three others were sentenced to probation.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Tonya Sulia Goodman prosecuted the case on behalf of the government.
The investigation was funded by the federal Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force Program.
