PROJECT SAFE NEIGHBORHOODS PROSECUTION RESULTS IN 252 MONTH SENTENCE FOR VIOLENT FEDERAL DRUG KINGPIN

TULSA, OK — District Judge Claire V. Eagan sentenced Larry O. Douglas, Jr., 45, of Tulsa, to 252 months in prison followed by 60 months of supervised release for Continuing Criminal Enterprise and Conspiracy to Carry, Brandish, and Use a Firearm During and in Relation to a Crime of Violence. Douglas must also pay a special monetary assessment of $200.00.

Douglas was convicted of the federal drug Kingpin statute which is reserved for the most serious drug violators. Beginning as early as September 2012, and continuing through March 11, 2018, Douglas was the leader of a criminal enterprise and conspiracy which involved using and maintaining a facility in which to possess, distribute and manufacture “crack” cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana. Douglas also used physical force and firearms to intimidate and threaten witnesses to prevent them from communicating to law enforcement of his commission of federal crimes.

United States Attorney Shores stated, “Drug trafficking and violent crimes are tearing away at the fabric of our society. Kingpins like Larry Douglas can wreck communities. Drug organizations destroy families by facilitating substance abuse and addiction problems. Larry Douglas sold methamphetamine, crack cocaine, powder cocaine, and marijuana in northeastern Oklahoma. His organization utilized fear and violence as tools of the trade. We are all safer with Larry Douglas in federal prison. I am thankful to the collaborative efforts of the Oklahoma and Kansas investigators as well as the FBI who joined forces to take down this criminal enterprise.”

This prosecution was part of the Department of Justice’s Project Safe Neighborhoods and resulted from a joint investigation conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Tulsa Police Department. United States Attorney Trent Shores and Assistant United States Attorneys Allen J. Litchfield and Eric O. Johnston handled the prosecution of this case.
