US Department of Justice

PITTSBURGH, PA — A former resident of Monaca, PA, has been indicted by a federal grand jury this week in Pittsburgh on a charge of violating a federal narcotics law.

The one-count Indictment named Martinis Ramon Lee, 36, formerly of Monaca, PA, as the sole defendant.

According to the Indictment presented to the court, on or about July 19, 2022, Lee possessed with intent to distribute 100 grams or more of a mixture and substance containing heroin, a Schedule I controlled substance; fentanyl, a Schedule II controlled substance; and fluorofentanyl, a fentanyl analogue and a Schedule I controlled substance. The Indictment also alleges that Lee possessed with intent to distribute a quantity of crack cocaine, a Schedule II controlled substance.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of not less than 10 years in prison, a fine not to exceed $10,000,000, a term of supervised release of at least 5 years or a combination thereof. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant United States Attorney Benjamin C. Dobkin is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The Drug Enforcement Administration and Pennsylvania State Police conducted the investigation leading to the Indictment in this case.

An indictment is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
