MUSKOGEE, OKLAHOMA – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma announced that Jalen Jewaun Glass, age 24, of Arlington, Texas, was sentenced to 60 months’ imprisonment and 4 years of supervised release for Possession With Intent To Distribute Methamphetamine, Cocaine, and Cocaine Base. The sentencings for each count will be served concurrently. The charges arose from an investigation by the McAlester Police Department, the District 18 Drug and Violent Crimes Task Force, and the Drug Enforcement Administration.

 

The three counts in the Indictment alleged that on or about August 18, 2018, within the Eastern District of Oklahoma, defendant knowingly and intentionally possessed with intent to distribute 5 grams or more of methamphetamine, 500 grams or more of a mixture or substance containing cocaine, and 28 grams or more of a mixture or substance containing cocaine base. Methamphetamine, cocaine, and cocaine base are Schedule II controlled substances.

 

“This investigation and prosecution is indicative of the results we can achieve for the communities we serve when agencies work together. This type of collaboration is common for law enforcement agencies serving McAlester and Pittsburg County,” said United States Attorney Brian J. Kuester. “Thousands of dosage units of dangerous drugs did not reach the destination intended by the defendant and he is being held accountable.”

 

The Honorable Ronald A. White, U.S. District Judge in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Oklahoma, in Muskogee, presided over the hearing. Assistant United States Attorney Clay Compton represented the United States.
