A state grand jury recommended criminal charges be filed today against three Western Pennsylvania men accused of trafficking cocaine.
Alan Landy II, 24, of Greenfield, Justin Bauman and Anthony Simoni, both 22 and of Conway, Beaver County, face charges of distributing at least a quarter kilo of cocaine, with an estimated street value of $30,000 in Allegheny, Beaver and Butler counties, according to a press release from Attorney General Kathleen Kane's office.
During the investigation, agents made a series of undercover purchases and controlled buys in and around Cranberry and Conway in Butler County and Pittsburgh.
The grand jury said Mr. Landy supplied Mr. Bauman and Mr. Simoni with ounce quantities of cocaine for street-level sales. In addition to the cocaine, Mr. Bauman and Mr. Simoni are accused of trafficking Oxycodone.
Mr. Landy is charged with three counts of delivery of cocaine, two counts of corrupt organizations and one count of criminal conspiracy.
Mr. Bauman is charged with six counts of delivery of cocaine, two counts of corrupt organizations, one count of criminal conspiracy and one count of delivery of Oxycodone.
Mr. Simoni is charged with four counts of delivery of cocaine, two counts of corrupt organizations and one count of criminal conspiracy.
