Johnstown, PA — A resident of Johnstown, Pennsylvania, was sentenced in federal court to 144 months in prison, to be followed by four years of supervised release, on his convictions of conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute fentanyl, methamphetamine, cocaine, crack cocaine, and heroin, United States Attorney Eric G. Olshan announced today.

United States Senior District Judge Kim R. Gibson imposed the sentence on Dwight Logan.

According to information presented to the Court, from in and around April 2019 to in and around July 2021, in the Western District of Pennsylvania, Logan conspired to distribute and possess with intent to distribute 40 grams or more of fentanyl, 50 grams or more of a mixture and substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine, a quantity of a mixture and substance containing a detectable amount of cocaine base in the form commonly known as crack, and a quantity of a mixture and substance containing a detectable amount of heroin. Further, in and around July 2021, Logan possessed with the intent to distribute 40 grams or more of fentanyl and a quantity of a mixture and substance containing a detectable amount of cocaine and methamphetamine. Logan was intercepted on a federal wiretap obtaining quantities of the drugs that he distributed to others.

Assistant United States Attorney Maureen Sheehan-Balchon prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.

United States Attorney Olshan commended the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Laurel Highlands Resident Agency and Homeland Security Investigations for the investigation that led to the successful prosecution of Logan. Additional agencies participating in the investigation included the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation (CI), Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, United States Postal Inspection Service, Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General, Pennsylvania State Police, Cambria County District Attorney’s Office, Indiana County District Attorney’s Office, Cambria County Sheriff’s Office, Cambria Township Police Department, Indiana Borough Police Department, Johnstown Police Department, Upper Yoder Township Police Department, Richland Police Department, Ferndale Police Department, and other local law enforcement agencies.

This prosecution is part of an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF) investigation.

CI special agents are the only federal law enforcement agents with investigative jurisdiction over violations of the Internal Revenue Code, obtaining a more than a 90 percent federal conviction rate.
