Canonsburg Helps in Heroin Investigation

The investigation led to a Pittsburgh man being sentenced to 150 months in prison.

The Canonsburg Police Department was credited this week for its role in an investigation that led to a Pittsburgh man being sentenced in federal court for violating narcotics trafficking laws.

Richard Wagner, 28, was sentenced to serve 150 months in prison followed by eight years of supervised release by United States District Judge Arthur J. Schwab, the U.S. Justice Department said in a release.

From January 2010 to March 3, 2011, Wagner conspired to distribute and possess with intent to distribute 100 grams or more of heroin.

U.S. Attorney Hickton also commended the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, the Pennsylvania State Police, the Allegheny County Sheriff's Office, the Ross Township Police Department and the Allegheny County Police Department for the successful investigation leading to the conviction and sentence in this case.
