Major drug and firearms trafficking network dismantled in Pennsylvania

HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania — Attorney General Michelle Henry announced the indictment of 13 people linked to a major drug and gun trafficking operation in Erie and Crawford counties. The 51st State Investigative Grand Jury recommended charges following an extensive investigation led by the Office of the Attorney General’s Office of Narcotics Investigations.

The ring’s alleged leaders, Quran Lindsey-Cooley, 25, and Daymeon Duck, 26, coordinated efforts to distribute fentanyl/heroin, methamphetamine, and firearms throughout northwestern Pennsylvania. Lindsey-Cooley was arrested late last week and faces multiple charges including corrupt organizations and serious drug and firearms offenses.

Recent search operations led to the seizure of significant quantities of methamphetamine, fentanyl, fentanyl-containing pills, seven firearms, and cash derived from illegal activities. Lindsey-Cooley is currently being held on $250,000 bail, while Duck has posted $75,000 bail. Other key suspects include Tyreem Craig and Tiffany Fletcher, with bonds set at $250,000 and $50,000, respectively.

“This operation underscores our commitment to removing dangerous elements from our communities,” said Attorney General Henry, praising the grand jury’s investigative efforts and diligence. Four of the defendants remain at large, intensifying ongoing efforts to arrest them.
