reading man admits heroin meth trafficking federal charges schuylkill luzerne lackawanna county

A Reading man admitted in federal court last week that he helped traffic a large amount of meth and heroin in Schuylkill and surrounding counties.

According to information from the US Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, William Terron, 38, entered a guilty plea on conspiracy charges on April 8. Judge Robert D. Mariani ordered a pre-sentence report to be completed on Terron.

The crimes to which Terron admitted carry a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in federal prison. Terron could also be sentenced to a period of supervised release following his prison term and up to a $10,000 fine. He will be sentenced at a later date, the US Attorney’s Office reports.

Terron was one of 5 people indicted by a federal grand jury back in December 2018 on charges of meth trafficking in Schuylkill, Luzerne, and Lackawanna counties. Between January 2017 and December 2018, authorities believe Terron was one of those five who helped traffic between 1.5-5 kilograms of meth and between 1-3 kilograms of heroin in those areas.

A co-conspirator, Amanda Boyle, 37, of Luzerne County, was sentenced to 9 years in prison for her role in this drug ring.

The investigation into this drug trafficking operation was done by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, Pennsylvania State Police, Kingston Police Dept, the Luzerne County Drug Task Force, and the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General.
