Perkins was convicted following a 3-day jury trial in September 2018 presided over by United States District Judge Mae A. D’Agostino.   The trial evidence established that the FBI and other law enforcement executed a search warrant on Perkins’s Albany apartment on April 4, 2017.  An FBI Agent searched Perkins and found him to be hiding, in bags attached to his underwear, what turned out to be approximately 42 grams of crack cocaine, 36 grams of cocaine, and 7.5 grams of heroin mixed with fentanyl.  Agents also seized, from the apartment, two digital scales and $1,746 in cash.

This case was investigated by the FBI and its Capital District Safe Streets Gang Task Force, which includes FBI Special Agents and members of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, including the New York State Police, the New York Department of Corrections and Community Supervision, and the Albany Police Department.  This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Barnett.
