United States Attorney Matthew D. Krueger of the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced that on October 10, 2018, a two-count federal indictment was issued against Craig R. Webb (age: 42) of Appleton, Wisconsin.

The indictment alleges that Craig R. Webb possessed in excess of 50 grams of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute the controlled substance and did so while in the possession of a firearm, contrary to Title 18 United States Code, Section 924(c). If convicted of the charges alleged, Webb faces a mandatory 15 year prison sentence and up to a life sentence. Webb will be arraigned on October 19, 2018, in Green Bay federal court.

Project Safe Neighborhoods is a federal, state, and local law enforcement collaboration to identify, investigate, and prosecute individuals responsible for violent crimes in our neighborhoods. Project Safe Neighborhoods’ strategy brings together all levels of law enforcement and community resources to reduce violent crime and improve the quality of life in all our neighborhoods.

This case was investigated by the Lake Winnebago Area MEG Unit and the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office. It will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Daniel R. Humble.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt.  The defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the government must prove him guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
