MISSOULA—Missoula resident Tiffany Rose Ramirez, who admitted to methamphetamine trafficking charges, was sentenced today to 10 years in prison followed by five years of supervised release, U.S. Attorney Kurt Alme said.

Ramirez, 31, pleaded guilty in April to possession with intent to distribute meth.

U.S. District Judge Donald W. Molloy presided.

The prosecution said in court documents that on March 17, 2018 in Lake County, Ramirez was driving a vehicle that was pulled over and later searched pursuant to a search warrant. The search led to the recovery of methamphetamine. Two confidential informants told law enforcement that they obtained meth from Ramirez.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Tara Elliott prosecuted the case, which was investigated by Homeland Security Investigations and the Northwest Drug Task Force.

The case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), which is the centerpiece of the Department of Justice’s violent crime reduction efforts.  PSN is an evidence-based program proven to be effective at reducing violent crime. Through PSN, a broad spectrum of stakeholders work together to identify the most pressing violent crime problems in the community and develop comprehensive solutions to address them. As part of this strategy, PSN focuses enforcement efforts on the most violent offenders and partners with locally based prevention and reentry programs for lasting reductions in crime.
