Sacramento Man Sentenced in Alaska for Drug Conspiracy

DEC 13 (JUNEAU, Alaska) – Travell Demar Pinkston, 42 of Sacramento, California, was sentenced on December 12, 2012, in federal court for his role in a conspiracy to distribute and to possess with the intent to distribute oxycodone. Pinkston was sentenced to 42 months in prison and three years of supervised release for his role in the drug conspiracy.

According to information presented to the court, the defendant was a member of a large scale drug conspiracy in which oxycodone was delivered to Juneau, Alaska, from sources located in Sacramento, California, through commercial package delivery services and drug couriers flying on commercial flights. The oxycodone was delivered to other members of the conspiracy for subsequent distribution in Juneau and drug proceeds were sent back to other co-conspirators located in Sacramento, California, via bank deposits, wire remittance services, or money couriers.

The case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration, Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigations, Port of Seattle Police Department, and Juneau Police Department-Drug Metro Unit.
