Chicago Man Sentenced to Prison for Interstate Cocaine Trafficking



A resident of Chicago, Illinois, was sentenced in federal court 46 months of incarceration, to be followed by three years of supervised release, on his conviction of violating federal narcotics laws, United States Attorney Eric G. Olshan announced today.

United States District Judge Christy Criswell Wiegand imposed the sentence on Anthony Cook, 55.

According to information presented to the Court, Cook supplied over five kilograms of cocaine to two cocaine distributors based in the Western District of Pennsylvania after personally transporting the drugs from Chicago.

Assistant United States Attorney Jonathan D. Lusty prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.

United States Attorney Olshan commended the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Pennsylvania State Police, and Perryopolis Police Department for the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of Cook.

This prosecution is part of an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF) investigation. OCDETF identifies, disrupts, and dismantles the highest-level drug traffickers, money launderers, gangs, and transnational criminal organizations that threaten the United States by using a prosecutor-led, intelligence-driven, multi-agency approach that leverages the strengths of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies against criminal networks.

Outcome:

Defendant was found guilty and sentenced to 46 months of incarceration, to be followed by three years of supervised release
