$20,000 Methamphetamine Deal Sends Wichita Man To Federal Prison For 8+ Years

WICHITA, KAN. – A Wichita man who arranged to sell an undercover buyer a pound of methamphetamine for $20,000 was sentenced Monday to 100 months in federal prison, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said.

 Wyatt Leedy, 36, Wichita, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. In his plea, Leedy admitted he and co-defendant Patrick C. Hains were arrested Jan. 14, 2014, at Pelican Point Apartments, 2150 N. Meridian, after a Wichita police officer working undercover paid them $20,000 for a pound of methamphetamine. In telephone conversations with the undercover officer, Leedy set up the meeting with Hains in which the money changed hands.

Co-defendants include:
Patrick C. Hains, who was sentenced to 121 months in federal prison.
Jose Ramon Montelongo-Castrejon, who was sentenced to two years on federal supervised release.

Grissom commended the Wichita Police Department and Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason Hart for their work on the case.
