A Youngstown man has been sentenced to over a decade in prison for leading a drug conspiracy in the area. 

Terrance May, 48, of Youngstown, was sentenced today to over 14 years in prison by U.S. District Judge Benita Y. Pearson today after earlier pleading guilty to conspiracy to distribute drugs and distributing drugs. 

May was ordered to serve 15 years of supervised release following imprisonment and pay a $2,400 special assessment.

According to a press release, May led a drug conspiracy in the Youngstown area that distributed fentanyl, cocaine, cocaine base, and heroin from February 2020 until January 2022. 

Investigators used a wiretap to intercept drug communications from May and other co-conspirators that led to search warrants being executed that resulted in seizures of illegal drugs.

The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation of Youngstown, the Youngstown Police Department, the Boardman Police Department, the Mahoning County Sheriff's Office, and the Campbell Police Department.
