FORT WAYNE - A Northeast Indiana man has been sentenced following fire arms and drug charges.
Oh Min, age 22, of Fort Wayne, Indiana, was sentenced by United States District Court Judge Holly A. Brady on his plea of guilty to possession with intent to distribute fentanyl and possessing a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime, announced United States Attorney Clifford D. Johnson.
Min was sentenced to 156 months in prison followed by 2 years of supervised release.
According to documents in this case, in April 2021, while investigating the complaint of drug dealing occurring in a church parking lot, law enforcement discovered Min in a vehicle along with 170 fentanyl pills, marijuana, THC vaping cartridges, and a loaded firearm. Min was arrested on outstanding warrants. In September 2021, a search warrant was served at Min’s residence where an additional 120 fentanyl pills and marijuana were discovered along with a loaded handgun.
The case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, with the assistance of the Fort Wayne Police Department. This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Stacey R. Speith.
This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and gun violence, and to make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. On May 26, 2021, the Department launched a violent crime reduction strategy strengthening PSN based on these core principles: fostering trust and legitimacy in our communities, supporting community-based organizations that help prevent violence from occurring in the first place, setting focused and strategic enforcement priorities, and measuring the results.
