PORT ARTHUR MAN CAUGHT IN OPERATION TIME MACHINE
Glen Elzie Duncan gets nearly 6 years for Drug Charges

            BEAUMONT, Texas – A 29-year-old Port Arthur, Texas man has been sentenced to federal prison for drug trafficking violations as a result of Operation Time Machine in the Eastern District of Texas announced U.S. Attorney John M. Bales today.

            Glen Elzie Duncan pleaded guilty on Dec. 28, 2009, to possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine and was sentenced to 70 months in federal prison today by U.S. District Judge Ron Clark.

            According to information presented in court, on July 15, 2009, law enforcement officers executed a search warrant in the 800 block of 10th Street in Port Arthur.  During the search, officers discovered approximately 19.70 grams of crack cocaine as well as digital scale and other items used in the manufacture of crack cocaine.  A federal grand jury indicted Duncan on Sep. 16, 2009 and charged him with federal drug trafficking violations.

            This case was prosecuted as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods' Operation Time Machine program. Operation Time Machine is aimed at reducing gun and gang violence, deterring illegal possession of guns, ammunition and body armor, and improving the safety of residents in Port Arthur, Texas. Participants in the initiative include community members and organizations as well as federal, state and local law enforcement agencies.

            This case is being investigated by the Port Arthur Police Department and the DEA and prosecuted by Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Baylor Wortham.
