Harrisburg Drug Dealer Affiliated with “NFL” Rap Group Sentenced to 129 Months In Prison

HARRISBURG, Pa. — The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Anderson Ortiz, 24, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Christopher C. Conner to 129 months in prison for drug trafficking and firearms charges. 

According to U.S. Attorney Gerard M. Karam, the sentencing was the latest sentence imposed of the eight people charged in the indictment for running a drug trafficking conspiracy from 2018 to 2020. Members of the conspiracy were affiliated with a music group named “Never Forget Loyalty” or “NFL.” As a part of their drug trafficking operation, the “NFL” posted videos on YouTube which were filmed in various Harrisburg locales, including the drug involved premises of 1621 Market Street. In the videos, members of the group brandished various weapons, flashed cash, and displayed drugs. In a yearlong investigation, ATF and the local law enforcement conducted a series searches. During these searches, police recovered part of “NFL’s” arsenal, including a machine gun, assault rifles, and various weapons with extended magazines.  

After resolving various sentencing issues, Judge Conner sentenced Anderson Ortiz to the top of the sentencing guideline range. Ortiz had previously entered a guilty plea to conspiracy to traffic drugs and possession of a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking.  

All defendants have entered guilty pleas to drug trafficking and/or firearms offenses. Judge Conner sentenced the defendants as follows:

  • Kaleaf Brown, 28, was sentenced to 140 months in prison;
  • Qushawn Brown, 32, was sentenced to 137 months in prison;
  • Tyquann Langston, 28, was sentenced to 120 months in prison;
  • Adieas Johnson, 35, was sentenced to 120 months in prison;
  • Donza Brown, 60, was sentenced to 37 months in prison; and,
  • Jaionne Miller, 23, was sentenced to 37 months in prison.

Co-defendant Wesley Garner entered a guilty plea to weapons and drug trafficking offenses. He is awaiting sentencing.

The case was investigated by Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), the Harrisburg Bureau of Police, and the Pennsylvania State Police.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Consiglio is prosecuting the case.

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and gun violence, and to make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. On May 26, 2021, the Department of Justice launched a violent crime reduction strategy strengthening PSN based on these core principles: fostering trust and legitimacy in our communities, supporting community-based organizations that help prevent violence from occurring in the first place, setting focused and strategic enforcement priorities and measuring the results.
