Greycliff Man Sentenced to 120 Months in Federal Prison for Selling Methamphetamine Out of a Billings Hotel Room

BILLINGS - The United States Attorney’s Office announced today that Donald Theodore Fuller, a 34 year-old resident of Greycliff, Montana was sentenced to 120 months in prison, 5 years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment.  Fuller was convicted of possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute in violation of 21 U.S.C. § 841(a)(1).  

In May 2016, Billings Police received a tip about a male selling methamphetamine from a local hotel room.  Based on the tip, officers were able to determine which room the male had rented.  Eastern Montana HIDTA Task Force agents also assisted in the investigation and they eventually obtained a search warrant for the room.  When agents executed the warrant, Fuller was in the room.  During the search, agents seized 397.6 grams of pure methamphetamine, two firearms, $79,790 in United States Currency, and multiple items of drug paraphernalia.  The 397.6 grams of pure methamphetamine converts to 3,176 individual doses. 

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone.  Attorney General Jeff Sessions reinvigorated PSN in 2017 as part of the Department’s renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement and the local community to develop effective, locally-based strategies to reduce violent crime.
