FAIRBANKS - The final two defendants in a Fairbanks group that used music businesses Oil Money Entertainment and 20 Blocc Entertainment as fronts for the drug trade were sentenced in federal court this week.

As part of a plea agreement, Johnny “Blaze” Toussaint, 29, was sentenced Monday to three years and 10 months in prison. Cornelious “Bobby” Snowden was sentenced to two years, four months, according to a U.S. Department of Justice news release issued Thursday.

During the investigation, informants documented purchasing 79 grams of crack cocaine, 8 grams of powder cocaine and 13 Oxycodone pills from the group. Both men pleaded guilty to one count of drug conspiracy. Prosecutor Kelly Cavanaugh described their business as a retail-scale operation.

Martin Linenko, the leader of Oil Money Entertainment, was previously sentenced to more than seven years. Among the co-defendants, Adrian Steele was sentenced to nearly five years in prison, Tremain Wilson was sentenced to 6 1/2 years and Tyrone “Tizzy” Kimble, 29, was sentenced to two years.
