A Pittsburgh man was sentenced on Monday to nearly 11 years in prison for his role in a multi-state heroin trafficking operation.
United States Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld says Christopher T. Gyorko, 31, of Pittsburgh coordinated and managed a drug trafficking operation designed to transport heroin across state lines from Pittsburgh into Ohio and Marshall Counties, as-well-as locations in Ohio.
Authorities disrupted the heroin trafficking scheme in June 2015 when Gyorko, along with five other individuals, were charged in an 18-count federal indictment. One additional defendant was charged in federal court by criminal Information.
Gyorko pled guilty in November 2015 to one count of “Conspiracy to Possess with Intent to Distribute and to Distribute Heroin.” As part of the sentenced imposed, Gyorko was also ordered to forfeit his interest in a 2007 Chrysler 300M vehicle.
