Huntington Men Each Sentenced on Drug Possession Charges

Updated 20 weeks ago

In separate cases, two Huntington each received five years in prison for drug possession. 

George Gordon, 46, was sentenced for possession with intent to distribute 40 grams or more of fentanyl.  Gordon previously admitted he possessed the drug on December 19 when officers with the Huntington Police Department executed a search warrant at his residence at 416 30th St. 

Officers recovered 67 grams of fentanyl from a jar in the kitchen.  

David Bond, 38, previously pleaded guilty to two counts of possession with intent to distribute heroin, and one count of possession with intent to distribute fentanyl.  On three separate occasions between February 7, and February 20, 2018, Bond sold heroin and what he believed to be heroin, but in fact turned out to be fentanyl, to a confidential informant working with the DEA/HIDTA Task Force.  The drugs sold on these dates were tested by the DEA Lab, and confirmed to be heroin and fentanyl.  

“Week after week we are sending heroin and fentanyl dealers to federal prison,” said United States Attorney Mike Stuart in a press release. “When I took office, I promised to get poison peddlers off of our streets and lock them up, and that’s exactly what we’re doing.”

Both men were sentenced by U.S. District Judge Robert C. "Chuck" Chambers.
