Couple sentenced for supplying drugs to gang in Virginia

NEWPORT NEWS (AP) Federal prosecutors say that a couple from New Jersey was sentenced to prison for conspiring to provide cocaine and heroin to gang members in Virginia.

A news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia said that 48-year-old Stephen Price and 33-year-old Dominique Waller of Freehold, New Jersey, conspired to traffic drugs for sale in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia from at least 2015 to 2017.

Prosecutors said that Price supplied Bloods street gang members with heroin and cocaine by traveling from New Jersey to Virginia. The news release said that Waller would provide narcotics to the gang members when Price wasn’t available.

Authorities say that their sales of narcotics totaled almost $550,000.

The news release said that both of them pleaded guilty earlier this year to conspiracy to distribute cocaine and heroin.

Price was sentenced to more than 10 years in prison and Waller more than two years on Oct. 28.
