Anchorage Man And Woman Indicted On Federal Drug Trafficking Charges
ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Today, Wilton Eugene Toney, 62, and Denita Ann Love, a/k/a Denita Ann Solitaire, 58, both of Anchorage, Alaska, were named in a federal indictment charging them with drug conspiracy.
According to the charging documents, on Jan. 12, 2018, law enforcement officers seized two FedEx parcels located at the FedEx main hub in Anchorage. A search warrant revealed the parcels contained approximately 13 pounds of methamphetamine and three pounds of heroin. On the next day, law enforcement officers conducted a controlled delivery of the parcels to the lobby of the Barratt Inn Anchorage Airport, and observed Toney receive the parcels and take them to his room. Law enforcement officers converged on and secured the hotel room, where Toney and Love were the only occupants of the room at the time. A search warrant executed on the hotel room resulted in the seizure of additional amounts of methamphetamine and heroin, digital scales, and three firearms. The Alaska State Troopers estimate the approximate combined street value of the seized drugs is $1.2 million.
The Drug Enforcement Administration and the Alaska State Troopers conducted the investigation leading to the indictment in this case.
An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the government must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
