WILLIAMSPORT, PA — The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Demetri Carroll, age 27, of Philadelphia, was indicted Thursday by a federal grand jury on drug trafficking charges.

According to United States Attorney Gerard M. Karam, the indictment charges Carroll with one count of conspiracy to distribute controlled substances and nine counts of possession with intent to distribute controlled substances, including methamphetamine, fentanyl, cocaine base, and cocaine between October 2021 and August 2022, in Clinton and Lycoming Counties.

This case was investigated by the Lycoming County Narcotics Enforcement Unit, the Pennsylvania State Police and 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 offenses is 40 years imprisonment and a fine. A sentence for each of these offenses also includes a period of supervised release following imprisonment.  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.

Indictments are only allegations. All persons charged by indictment are presumed to be innocent unless and until found guilty in court.
