HOUMA, LA (WVUE) -
U.S. Attorney Kenneth Polite announced that a pair two Houma men have been sentenced for their roles in a heroin conspiracy. Roland "Troy" Chambers, 45, and Gregory Jackson, 40, were sentenced, Tuesday, by U.S. District Judge Jay C. Zainey.
According to a Department of Justice spokesperson, Chambers pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute 100 grams or more of heroin, one count of possession with intent to distribute 100 grams or more of heroin and three counts of distribution of heroin. He was sentenced to 71 months in jail.
Jackson previously pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute 100 grams or more of heroin and five counts of distribution of heroin. He was sentenced to 60 months in jail. In addition, both Jackson and Chambers were sentenced to four years of supervised release that must be served after being released from jail.
Chambers and Jackson worked together to sell the heroin in the Houma area, according to court documents. Undercover DEA agents participated in several heroin transactions with both Chambers and Jackson between July 1, 2012 and May 31, 2013. Chambers was the supplier of the group, making several trips to New Orleans to get the heroin, while Jackson taught others how to "bag up" the heroin for resale. DEA Agents and deputies with the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office found Chambers in possession of over 100 grams of heroin while returning from New Orleans.
