Choctaw Man Sentenced To 132 Months For Methamphetamine Distribution

MUSKOGEE, OKLAHOMA – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma announced that Anton Grguric Jr., age 46, of Choctaw, Oklahoma, was sentenced to 132 months imprisonment and 5 years of supervised release for Possession With Intent To Distribute Methamphetamine, in violation of Title 21, United States Code, Sections 841(a)(1) and 841(b)(1)(A) and Title 18, United States Code, Section 2. The charges arose from an investigation by the Sallisaw Police Department, the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Office, and the Drug Enforcement Administration.

The Indictment alleged that on or about February 6, 2017, within the Eastern District of Oklahoma, the defendant, did knowingly and intentionally possess with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of a mixture or substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine, a Schedule II controlled substance.

United States Attorney Brian J. Kuester said, “Disrupting supply chains that distribute Methamphetamine and other dangerous drugs for drug trafficking organizations is a priority of the Department of Justice. Most communities have felt the devastating impact that Meth has on individuals and families. We must continue to be diligent in our efforts to bring to justice those that have no regard for the harm they are delivering to the cities and towns across the country.”

The Honorable Ronald A. White, U.S. District Judge in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Oklahoma, in Muskogee, presided over the hearing. First Assistant United States Attorney Christopher Wilson represented the United States. The defendant will remain in custody pending transportation to the designated federal facility at which the non-paroleable sentence will be served.
