    Leesburg man arrested for conspiracy to distribute oxycodone

    A Leesburg man was arrested Monday on charges of conspiracy to distribute oxycodone that resulted in the death of a Loudoun County man.

    George Washington Crane V, 48, faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 20 years and a maximum penalty of life in prison if convicted.

    According to court documents and proceedings held today, Crane purchased oxycodone from sources in Washington, D.C. from 2006 through 2012. According to the affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint, Crane primarily distributed oxycodone to individuals in western Loudoun County.

    On Aug. 8, 2010, a 19-year-old Loudoun County man died from an oxycodone overdose at his home the day after leaving a drug rehabilitation facility. The criminal complaint alleges that Crane sold the oxycodone through an intermediary that ultimately resulted in the victim’s death from overdose.

    The investigation is being conducted by FBI’s Washington Field Office and the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office. Assistant U.S. Attorney Adam B. Schwartz is prosecuting the case on behalf of the United States.
