Perry Man Sentenced For Distributing Methamphetamine

Arthur Brock, age 32, of Perry, Georgia, was sentenced on April 22, 2015, to serve 100 months (eight years and four months) in federal prison for Distribution of Methamphetamine.  The sentence was handed down by the Honorable C. Ashley Royal, United States District Court Judge, in Macon, Georgia.

Mr. Brock entered a guilty plea to the charge on December 4, 2014.  As part of his plea agreement, Mr. Brock admitted that on October 23, 2013, he met with a confidential informant and an undercover Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) agent at the WalMart parking lot on Watson Boulevard in Warner Robins, Georgia.  Prior to the meeting, Mr. Brock had arranged to sell the undercover GBI agent two ounces of methamphetamine.  After a brief conversation in the parking lot, Mr. Brock handed the undercover agent 52.2 grams of methamphetamine that was packaged inside of a tube sock, in exchange for $3,000.00.

“The long prison sentence in this case will guarantee that Mr. Brock will not pollute the streets of Houston County with methamphetamine for the better part of the next decade.  I want to acknowledge the collaboration and good work of the GBI and the DEA.  Drug dealers need to take notice; we will use every resource to make sure that if you distribute drugs, you will wind up in federal prison facing a long sentence with no possibility of parole,” said United States Attorney Michael Moore.

The case was investigated by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and the Drug Enforcement Administration.  Assistant United States Attorney Beth Howard prosecuted the case for the Government.
