Long Island Men Sentenced to Prison for Methylone Conspiracy

APR 26 (ALBANY, N.Y.)  - Two Long Island men were sentenced to prison and fined on Friday for their roles in a conspiracy to distribute the controlled substance methylone.

In September 2014, Douglas Marshall, 25, of Lindenhurst, New York, and Anthony Carlson, 25, of Merrick, New York, pled guilty to conspiring to possess with intent to distribute methylone.  Methylone is an analogue of MDMA and often marketed as ecstasy.

Special Agent in Charge James J. Hunt, New York Division, U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). and United States Attorney Richard S. Hartunian announced the sentencing.

On August 23, 2013, Marshall and Carlson were arrested in Saratoga Springs, New York, after selling one kilogram of methylone in exchange for $14,000 in cash.  A search of Carlson’s residence in Bellmore, New York, later that day uncovered an additional kilogram of methylone, cocaine, a scale, and two firearms.

Senior United States District Judge Thomas J. McAvoy sentenced Marshall to 21 months in prison and fined him $5,000.  Carlson, who was found to have possessed the two firearms in connection with his drug trafficking activities, was sentenced to 29 months in prison and fined $5,000.  Both men were also ordered to serve three years of post-imprisonment supervised release.  They also forfeited $15,000 in drug proceeds.

This case was investigated by the DEA and the Saratoga Springs Police Department, and prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Wayne A. Myers.
