Olathe Man Sentenced to 18 Years For Trafficking in Methamphetamine

ANSAS CITY, KAN. – An Olathe man was sentenced Tuesday to 18 years in federal prison for trafficking in methamphetamine, U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister said.

David C. True, 32, Olathe, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. In his plea, he admitted he was a member of a drug trafficking organization that distributed meth in the Johnson County area. He admitted to regularly handling up to 10 pounds of methamphetamine a week, acting as both a buyer and a seller. In addition, he possessed firearms, which he was prohibited from doing because of a previous felony conviction.

McAllister commended the Miami County Sheriff’s Office, the Olathe Police Department, the Kansas City, Kan., Police Department, the Secret Service, the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office, and Special Assistant U.S. Attorney James Ward for their work on the case.
