St. Joseph man sentenced for conspiracy to distribute heroin

(KNZA)--A St. Joseph, Missouri man has been sentenced to 12 years in federal prison without parole for his role in a conspiracy to distribute heroin.

The U.S. Department of Justice, in a release, said 50-year-old Harvey Johnson was also also ordered last week to pay more than $43,000 to the federal government, which represents the money he gained from illegally trafficking drugs.

Johnson pleaded guilty in August 2021 to participating in a conspiracy to distribute heroin in the St. Joseph area from September of 2019 to March 26, 2021.

Court documents say Johnson is responsible for distributing around 2.9 kilograms of heroin

The case was investigated by the St. Joseph Police Department, Buchanan County Sheriff's Department, DEA, and ATF.
