Drug deaths lead to indictment of distributor


SCRANTON- A federal Grand Jury in Scranton returned a two-count Indictment yesterday charging a Monroe County man with drug distribution resulting in the death of two individuals.

The indictment alleges that around August 10-12 of this year, Vincent Ingino, 27, of East Stroudsburg, knowingly and intentionally distributed and possessed with intent to distribute controlled substances that included a mixture of acetyl fentanyl, fentanyl and heroin, causing the deaths of two individuals.

The charges stem from a joint investigation involving the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in Scranton, the Pennsylvania State Police, and Detectives from the Monroe County District Attorney’s Office.   

If convicted on both counts, Ingino could face up to life in prison.
