Mesa, Arizona, Man Sentenced To 120 Months For Methamphetamine Distribution

MUSKOGEE, OKLAHOMA – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma announced that Carlos Daniel Chavez-Lozano, age 27, of Mesa, Arizona was sentenced to 120 months imprisonment and 5 years 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).  The charge arose from an investigation by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol and the Drug Enforcement Administration.

The Indictment alleged that on or about March 9, 2017, in the Eastern District of Oklahoma, the defendant, did knowingly and intentionally possess with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine (actual), a Schedule II controlled substance.

United States Attorney Brian J. Kuester said, “There are few communities across the country that have not felt the horrific impacts of methamphetamine. Without regard for the tragedy that will ensue, drug dealers deliver their poison for profit. In this case the agents from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol and Drug Enforcement Administration worked together and prevented thousands of dosage units of methamphetamine from being delivered, and members of this office were able to successfully prosecute the defendant.”

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. 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.
