Heroin, carfentanil distributor sentenced
One of the co-conspirators who distributed heroin and carfentanil causing serious bodily injury was sentenced Thursday to 17 1/2 years by a federal judge.
Nathan Crowder was sentenced by U.S. Middle District Judge Matthew W. Brann.
On January 31, 2017, a vehicle in which Crowder was a passenger was traveling on Interstate 80 in Luzerne County and was stopped by Pennsylvania State Police for an alleged traffic violation.
A search of the vehicle subsequently revealed 6.7 grams of heroin. Crowder was charged with possession with the intent to deliver (“PWID”) in Luzerne County Court.
In July 2017 he was charged in Lycoming County with two separate cases of PWID and remained detained on those charges.
On September 28, 2017, Crowder was indicted for conspiring to distribute and distributing controlled substances.
The sentence included six years supervised release.
