Two Houma Men Sentenced in Heroin Distribution Conspiracy

MAY 07 (NEW ORLEANS) –  Roland “Troy” Chambers, 45, and Gregory Jackson, 40, both of Houma, Louisiana, were sentenced yesterday by U.S. District Judge Jay C. Zainey to 71 months and 60 months incarceration, respectively, announced DEA Special Agent in Charge Keith Brown and U.S. Attorney Kenneth Polite.  Both defendants were sentenced to four years of supervised release to be served after their incarceration.   

Chambers previously pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute 100 grams or more of heroin, one count of possession with intent to distribute 100 grams or more of heroin, and three counts of distribution of heroin.  Jackson previously pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute 100 grams or more of heroin and five counts of distribution of heroin.

According to court documents, Chambers and Jackson worked together to sell heroin in the Houma, Louisiana area.  From July 1, 2012 through May 31, 2013, Chambers and Jackson made several sales of heroin to confidential sources of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).  During the course of the conspiracy, Jackson would instruct others on how to “bag up” heroin for resale to other drug users.  Chambers served as a supplier, making several trips to New Orleans to obtain more heroin.  DEA agents and Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested Chambers in possession of over 100 grams of heroin immediately after he returned from New Orleans.

The case was investigated by the DEA New Orleans Division Office and the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Matthew Payne.
