Methamphetamine Dealer Sentenced To More Than Eight Years In Federal Prison

Tampa, FL – U.S. District Steven D. Merryday has sentenced Becky Angeles (39, Tampa) to eight years and four months in federal prison for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.  Angeles had pleaded guilty on April 27, 2021.  

According to court documents, between September and November 2020, Angeles and her co-conspirator distributed methamphetamine to an undercover police officer on several occasions. At the time they distributed the narcotics, Angeles and her co-conspirator were both armed with loaded firearms. Both had previously been convicted of felonies and, therefore, are prohibited from possessing a firearm or ammunition under federal law.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Plant City Police Department. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Diego F. Novaes.
