SCRANTON, PA —The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that David Paul Quick, age 26, of Scranton, Pennsylvania, was sentenced Thursday, May 18, 2023, by U.S. District Court Judge Malachy E. Mannion, to 70 months imprisonment for possession with intent to distribute more than fifty grams of methamphetamine.

According to United States Attorney Gerard M. Karam, Quick previously pleaded guilty and admitted to possessing more than fifty grams of methamphetamine for distribution in the Scranton area in 2022. The charge stems from an incident in June 2022, in which members of the Scranton Police Department and Pennsylvania State Police conducted a search of a residence on South Webster Avenue in Scranton and found Quick in possession of several packages of methamphetamine for distribution as well as a loaded .380 caliber handgun.

The charges against the defendant resulted from an investigation conducted by the Scranton Police Department, the Pennsylvania State Police, and the Drug Enforcement Administration.  Assistant United States Attorneys Robert J. O’Hara and Brian J. Gallagher prosecuted the case.
