MUSKOGEE, OKLAHOMA – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma announced that Darrell Dewayne Roberts Jr., age 31, of Alma, Arkansas, was sentenced to 157 months’ imprisonment and 5 years of supervised release for Possession With Intent To Distribute Methamphetamine.
The charges arose from an investigation by the Roland Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (“DEA”).
The Superseding Indictment alleges that on or about December 31, 2018, within the Eastern District of Oklahoma, the defendant knowingly and intentionally possessed with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine, a Schedule II controlled substance.
United States Attorney Brian J. Kuester said, “This prosecution began with an investigation by members of the Roland Police Department on December 31, 2018. As a result of their work, with assistance from agents from the DEA, thousands of dosage units were prevented from being distributed into communities in Eastern Oklahoma and Western Arkansas. This case is a great example of how collaborative law enforcement benefits the communities we serve.”
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 Edward Snow represented the United States.
