A United States District judge sentenced a Florissant man to 188 months in prison related to charges of transporting and distributing drugs in the St. Louis area.
Vinconto Johnson, 42, pled guilty in May to a felony count of conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute over five kilograms of cocaine and over one kilogram of heroin and one felony count of conspiracy to launder money.
According to a press release from the Eastern District of Missouri Department of Justice, Johnson and seven others were involved in a conspiracy for the regular transportation of cocaine, heroin and marijuana from Arizona to the St. Louis area. Others in the case have either been sentenced or are awaiting sentencing, and all pled guilty.
Also, as a part of his plea, Johnson will forfeit to the government the money and property received during the activities, which includes six cars, weapons and jewelry.
