Georgia Man Gets 20 Months In Prison For Bringing 10 Kilos of Marijuana To St. Thomas


    SENTENCED: Kurt Reovan

CHARLOTTE AMALIE – A 37-year-old Georgia man was sentenced in federal court to 1.6 years in prison after pleading guilty this summer to bringing nearly 10 kilos of marijuana into St. Thomas.

U.S. District Court Judge Curtis Gomez today sentenced Kurt Reovan of Atlanta to 20 months in prison and three years of supervised release for conspiracy to distribute marijuana, U.S. Attorney Ronald Sharpe said.

On June 8, Reovan pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute marijuana.

Court records show that on February 13, Reovan and 23-year-old Amari Stroy of Union City, Georgia, were apprehended at the Cyril E. King International Airport on St. Thomas with approximately 9.9 kilograms of marijuana in a checked suitcase.

Reovan brought the marijuana to St. Thomas on a flight that originated in Atlanta, Sharpe said.

On September 17, Stroy was sentenced to eight months in
prison and one year of supervised release for possession of marijuana.

The case was investigated by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney David White.
