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.
