P.A. man sentenced to 45 months in heroin case

Kevin L. Caynor, 43, of Port Angeles, was sentenced to serve 45 months in state prison followed by 45 months probation on June 17 in Clallam County Superior Court.

Caynor’s sentence was the result of a guilty plea to delivering heroin on July 27, 2012. Caynor delivered heroin to an informant working for the Olympic Peninsula Narcotics Enforcement Team and Clallam County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Bureau.

Caynor also pled guilty to possessing heroin on March 14 when OPNET executed a search warrant at his residence. Three other counts were dismissed in exchange for Kevin Caynor’s guilty plea.

Kevin Caynor’s sentence is substantial for Washington, narcotics team supervisor Jason Viada said, based largely on a prior criminal history that includes 12 prior felony convictions such as theft, possession of heroin (three counts), possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, possession of methamphetamine, attempted possession of heroin, assault 3, solicitation to deliver heroin, first degree reckless endangerment (two counts) and possession of stolen property.

Caynor’s brother, Ennis Caynor, age 38, also of Port Angeles, recently was sentenced to 22 months in state prison after he pled guilty to a series of crimes including possession of a controlled substance, possessing a stolen motor vehicle, possession of methamphetamine and bail jumping.

Ennis Caynor’s prior criminal history includes possession of stolen property, violations of the Uniform Controlled Substances Act, malicious mischief, bail jumping and an explosives licensing violation.
