Huntington Heroin, Illegal Firearm Dealer Sentenced
Prior to executing a search warrant on the defendant’s residence, law enforcement agents conducted several controlled heroin buys from Strickland and Hamlin.
Hamlin, 34, of Huntington, was previously sentenced in July 2012 to 2½ years in federal prison for her role in a heroin distribution scheme led by Strickland.
The Huntington Violent Crime and Drug Task Force conducted the investigation. Assistant United States Attorney Gregory McVey handled the prosecution. The sentence was imposed by Chief United States District Judge Robert C. Chambers.
This case was brought as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods. Project Safe Neighborhoods is a nationwide commitment to reduce gun crime in the United States by networking existing local programs targeting gun crime.
