Michigan Man Sentenced For Bringing Heroin To Huntington On A Greyhound Bus
Huntington, W.Va. – A Michigan man was sentenced to nine years and three months’ imprisonment for possession of heroin with intent to distribute, United States Attorney Booth Goodwin announced today. Darius Lajuan Kincannon, 30, of Redford, Michigan, arrived in Huntington from Michigan in February 2013 on a Greyhound bus. Kincannon brought a backpack with him that contained, among other items, approximately 510.6 grams of heroin and a 16 ounce bottle of Superior Inisotal, a common cutting agent for heroin. The backpack was seized at the Greyhound station by the Huntington Police Department. Kincannon previously plead guilty on November 19, 2013, to possession with intent to deliver 100 grams or more of heroin.
This case is being prosecuted as part of an ongoing effort led by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of West Virginia to combat the illicit sale and misuse of prescription drugs. The U.S. Attorney’s Office, joined by federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, is committed to aggressively pursuing and shutting down illegal pill trafficking, eliminating open air drug markets, and curtailing the spread of opiate painkillers in communities across the Southern District.
