CLEVELAND, TEXAS MAN SENTENCED TO 110 MONTHS FOR FEDERAL DRUG VIOLATIONS
(Beaumont, TX) United States Attorney Becky Gregory announced today that a 33 year old Cleveland, Texas man has been sentenced to 110 months for federal drug violations in the Eastern District of Texas.
JASON AARON ENLOE had pleaded guilty in February of this year to conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute fifty grams or more of a substance or mixture containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine. Enloe was sentenced today during an appearance before the Honorable Judge Marcia Crone. In addition to his term of imprisonment, Enloe will also be required to complete a four year period of supervised release.
According to information presented in Court, federal and law enforcement agencies began to investigate methamphetamine sales in 2005. During the course of the investigation, Enloe was identified as a conspirator in the sale of methamphetamine. In July 2005, an undercover officer met with Enloe and a co-conspirator at a department store in Cleveland, Texas to purchase methamphetamine. During the transaction, the officer paid Enloe $600.00, and Enloe in turn provided the undercover officer 13.76 grams of methamphetamine. Enloe met undercover officers and provided methamphetamine for varying sums of cash on at least four other occasions. As the investigation progressed, Enloe unwittingly led the undercover officer to the residence of his source of supply for methamphetamine, Thomas William Blevins. Blevins, who was charged in a separate indictment, has pleaded guilty and is awaiting sentencing.
This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney John Craft.
