Massachusetts Man Sentenced for Conspiracy to Distribute Illegal Controlled Substances as well as Possession with Intent to Distribute Heroin
BURLINGTON, Vt. – The Office of the United States Attorney for the District of Vermont stated that on July 31, 2023, Glendon Parrish-Cambell, 23, of Springfield, Massachusetts, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge William K. Sessions III to a sentence of 42 months’ imprisonment and a 3-year term of supervised release for conspiracy to distribute fentanyl, cocaine, and cocaine base and for possession with intent to distribute heroin.
According to court records, during the months of March and April of 2022, law enforcement conducted controlled purchases of fentanyl and cocaine base at a residence in Washington, Vermont. Law enforcement identified Justin Llano, aka “TJ,” and Glendon Parrish-Cambell, aka “B,” as drug traffickers distributing fentanyl and cocaine base from the residence. A Special Agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives obtained a search warrant for the residence, which was executed on May 13, 2022. During the search, law enforcement seized 14 firearms, approximately 28 grams of cocaine base, and approximately 400 bags of fentanyl.
Previously, as courts records show, on May 22, 2021, law enforcement found Parrish-Cambell in an apartment in Barre, Vermont, with approximately 10,300 bags of heroin nearby and $2,428 in United States currency on his person.
United States Attorney Nikolas P. Kerest commended the collaborative investigatory efforts of the Vermont Drug Task Force, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection Office of Air and Marine, Homeland Security Investigations, Vermont State Police, Montpelier Police Department, Barre City Police Department, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, and the Washington County State’s Attorney’s Office also provided valuable assistance.
This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew Gilman. Parrish-Cambell was represented by Robert L. Sussman, Esq.
