Franklin County Woman Pleads Guilty to Conspiring to Possess with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Eastern District of Missouri

St. Louis, MO –Reanna Danielle Campbell, 26, of Franklin County, MO, pleaded guilty to her involvement in conspiring to possess with the intent to distribute methamphetamine.  Campbell appeared in federal court today before United States District Judge John A. Ross who accepted her plea and set her sentencing date for April 23, 2020.

According to the plea agreement, Campbell and her co-defendant Joshua Spencer were engaged in the sale of crystal methamphetamine in the St. Louis Metropolitan area, as well as in Franklin and Jefferson County, Missouri.  Investigators conducted controlled buys of methamphetamine from Campbell and Spencer in and around the area.  Also during the course of the investigation, Spencer and Campbell crashed a vehicle while fleeing from police near the Interstate 44 entrance at South Elm Avenue in Webster, Missouri, and fled on foot.  Two handguns were recovered by law enforcement near the scene of the crash and investigators seized five other firearms from the crashed vehicle, along with knives and additional firearms magazines and drug paraphernalia. 

Campbell faces imprisonment of not more than 20 years and a fine of not more than $1,000,000,000.  In determining the actual sentences, a judge is required to consider the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines, which provide recommended sentencing ranges.

Spencer remains charged with conspiracy to distribute and to possess with the intent to distribute methamphetamine, distribution of methamphetamine, being a felon in possession of a firearm, and possessing a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.  Those charges remain merely accusations and do not constitute proof of guilt.  Every defendant is presumed to be innocent unless and until proven guilty.

The Multi-County Narcotics and Violent Crimes Enforcement Unit and the Drug Enforcement Administration is investigating this case, with assistance from the Kirkwood and Webster Police Departments.  Assistant United States Attorney Lisa Yemm is handling this case for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
