WILLIAMSPORT, PA — The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Larry Todd Wilcox, age 55, of Berwick, Pennsylvania, was indicted on December 8, 2022, by a federal grand jury on drug trafficking charges. The case was unsealed following Wilcox’s arrest.

According to United States Attorney Gerard M. Karam, the indictment charges Wilcox with possession with intent to distribute and distribution of 50 grams and more of actual methamphetamine on July 26, 2022, in Columbia County.  Wilcox is also charged with possession with intent to distribute and distribution of 50 grams and more of a mixture and substance containing methamphetamine on November 3, 2022, in Luzerne County.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Alisan V. Martin is prosecuting the case.

The maximum penalty under federal law for the most significant offense is life imprisonment, a period of supervised release, and a fine.  A sentence following a finding of guilt is imposed by the Judge after consideration of the applicable federal sentencing statutes and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.

Information, a criminal complaint, or an arrest is not a declaration of guilt. A suspect, arrestee, or defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
