Neenah Man Indicted on Methamphetamine Charges

United States Attorney Matthew D. Krueger of the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced that on November 20, 2018, a federal indictment was issued against Jeffrey Melgar (age: 33) of Neenah, Wisconsin.

The indictment alleges that Jeffrey Melgar possessed in excess of 50 grams of actual (also known as “crystal”) methamphetamine with the intent to distribute the controlled substance in violation of Title 21, United States Code, Section 841(a) and (b)(1)(A). If convicted of the charges alleged, Melgar faces a mandatory 10 year prison sentence and up to a life sentence. Melgar will be arraigned on November 27, 2018, in Green Bay federal court.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, and the Lake Winnebago Area Metropolitan Enforcement Group. 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.
