Houma Man Sentenced to 10 Years Imprisonment for Gun and Drug Charges

U.S. Attorney Kenneth A. Polite announced that CHAD LANDRY, age 45, of Houma, was sentenced today after having previously pled guilty to conspiring to distribute over 500 grams of methamphetamine, and unlawfully possessing a firearm in furtherance of his methamphetamine conspiracy. 

U.S. District Judge Jay C. Zainey sentenced LANDRY to 120 months of incarceration, to be followed by 5 years of supervised release. 

According to court documents, in 2013 and 2014, LANDRY was receiving quantities of methamphetamine in the mail from his Houston-based drug suppliers.  Over the course of two years, the suppliers sent LANDRY approximately 25 packages via Fed Ex to LANDRY’s home in Houma.  LANDRY repackaged and sold methamphetamine to friends and acquaintances in the Houma area, as well as personally used some of the methamphetamine.  At the time of his arrest on or about August 13, 2014, LANDRY was in possession of approximately 7 grams of methamphetamine, numerous items of drug paraphernalia, and a Springfield XP .40 caliber semi-automatic handgun. 

U.S. Attorney Polite praised the work of the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office, and Louisiana State Police in investigating this matter.  Assistant United States Attorney Brandon S. Long was in charge of the prosecution.
