A 39-year-old Florida man was recently sentenced to more than 25 years in federal prison after being charged with an alleged conspiracy to distribute at least 50 grams of methamphetamine.
The man has pled guilty in the past and affirmed that he traveled to Los Angeles, California, from Florida on September 1, 2019. During this time, he mailed to Charleston a box containing over 15 pounds of methamphetamine. Another man gathered the box and the methamphetamine was supposed to be distributed in the Charleston area. On September 4, 2019, the U. S. Postal Inspection Service seized the shipment. They found over 18 pounds of methamphetamine inside after securing a search warrant for the package. The bulk of the methamphetamine, with the exception of 11.2 grams, which stayed inside the container for managed distribution, was extracted.
