GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Authorities say a Muskegon man was sentenced on federal drug trafficking charges.
Delando Johnson was sentenced to 20 years in prison — 15 years for drug trafficking to be followed by five years for possessing a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office Western District of Michigan.
Authorities say he sold heroin and fentanyl at least three times in May 2020. When he was arrested, they say, investigators found heroin, fentanyl, cocaine, trafficking paraphernalia, guns and ammunition, and more than $6,000 in case. Federal prosecutors say Johnson admitted he was selling drugs.
