Harrisburg men convicted of cocaine trafficking

Posted: Updated:

A federal jury has convicted two Harrisburg men for conspiracy and distribution of cocaine and crack cocaine, the U.S. Attorney's Office said Thursday.

A jury found Dawan Maynard, 41, and Michael Morris, 46, guilty on all counts May 8 following a two-day trial before Senior U.S. District Court Judge William Caldwell.

A sentencing date has not been scheduled.

Maynard, Morris and a third man, Corry Matthews, were indicted in October 2012 after a three-year investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Dauphin County Drug Task Force.

U.S. Attorney Peter Smith said evidence showed that the three were involved in a violent drug trafficking enterprise from 2009 through 2012 in Dauphin County.

Maynard and his co-conspirators also used threats of violence and intimidation to acquire cocaine from other area drug traffickers, Smith said.

Matthews pleaded guilty in January and is awaiting sentencing.
