BEAUMONT, TEXAS MAN SENTENCED TO 57 MONTHS FOR FEDERAL DRUG VIOLATIONS
(Beaumont, TX) United States Attorney Becky Gregory announced today that a 30 year old Beaumont, Texas man has been sentenced to 57 months for federal drug violations in the Eastern District of Texas.
GLENN ERIC AUBRY, JR. had pleaded guilty in January of this year to possession with the intent to distribute more than five grams, but less than fifty grams of cocaine base, also known as "crack" cocaine. Aubry was sentenced today during an appearance before the Honorable Judge Marcia Crone. Following his release from federal prison, Aubry will be required to complete a three year period of supervised release.
According to information presented in Court, investigators with the Jefferson County Narcotics Task Force, while conducting surveillance on a hotel in Beaumont, observed activities, stemming from a particular room, consistent with drug trafficking. While officers continued to monitor the activities of the room, Aubry was observed leaving the hotel, driving away in an automobile. Officers mobilized to follow the car, and after the driver, later identified as Aubry, was observed committing a traffic offense, the officers initiated a traffic stop. As the car slowed, officers saw an object being thrown from the driver's window. Officers retrieved the object, which turned out to be a baggie containing "crack" cocaine. Additional officers continued their surveillance on the hotel room, and were able to make a traffic stop on another vehicle believed to be linked to drug trafficking originating from the same hotel room. This stop resulted in the seizure of approximately five additional ounces of crack cocaine, as well as drug paraphernalia.
This case was investigated by the Jefferson County Narcotics Task Force, the Drug Enforcement Administration (Beaumont Resident Agency), Beaumont Police Department and the Jefferson County Regional Crime Laboratory. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Randall Fluke.
