WILMINGTON, Del.-  A Dover man convicted of possession of heroin and illegal firearms has been sentenced to 110 months in federal prison, according to the United States Department of Justice.

From September and October of 2018, Kenneth Holland, 49, sold heroin on multiple occasions and illegally sold a handgun. When law enforcement arrested him they found over 10,000 baggies of heroin and a assault weapon.

United State Attorney David C. Weiss announced Holland's sentencing on September 23rd 2019 and commented on the sentencing stating, “The Defendant repeatedly chose not only to sell heroin, but also worked to illegally arm others with firearms – including an assault rifle.  The substantial sentence imposed sends the message that people who put drugs and guns onto the streets will face serious consequences for their actions”.

According to DOJ, Hollands arrest and conviction was a part of Operation Blue Hen, a campaign between March and September of 2018 by the ATF to remove illegal drugs and firearms from Delaware cities. 

Operation Blue Hen has since seized nine firearms, 768 grams of crack cocaine, 864 grams of methamphetamine and 37 grams of heroin, according to DOJ.
