Huntington Woman Sentenced to Prison for Heroin Distribution
On January 23, 2013, Steinbrecher arranged a heroin transaction between co-defendant Alvaro J. Jaime Jr. and what determined to be a Drug Enforcement Agent (DEA) agent working undercover. Steinbrecher and Jaime met the undercover DEA agent at a predetermined location in Chesapeake, Ohio. Jaime, who at the time indicated that he did not have enough heroin to complete the transaction, directed Steinbrecher and the undercover agent to a second location in Huntington, where they met with another heroin dealer. After arriving in Huntington, Jaime met the heroin dealer in the parking lot of a Huntington-area restaurant. Jaime obtained approximately four grams of heroin from his source of supply. Afterward, Jaime distributed the heroin to an undercover DEA agent in exchange for $600. Steinbrecher received $200 in pre-recorded U.S. currency as payment for her role in the transaction. The transaction was recorded by law enforcement authorities using audio and video surveillance.
Steinbrecher also arranged illegal heroin transactions on January 29, 2013 and in February 2013 and received cash payments for her participation.
Alvaro F. Jaime, Jr., 29, of Chesapeake, Ohio, was sentenced last week to 46 months in federal prison for selling heroin.
The DEA and Huntington Police Department conducted the investigation. Assistant United States Attorney Gregory McVey handled prosecution.
