FORT WAYNE – Antonio Munos, 47, of Fort Wayne, Indiana, was charged in a criminal complaint with possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, announced U.S. Attorney Kirsch. 

The criminal complaint alleges that Munos possessed in excess of 2 pounds of methamphetamine.  It was alleged that a Mr. Munos had agreed to sell methamphetamine to an individual on October 14, 2019.  Mr. Munos and the individual met but did not come to agreement on the price so Mr. Munos was allegedly going to drive to the source of supply’s house.  While driving to the house, Mr. Munos committed a traffic violation and was stopped by police.  He exhibited nervous behavior when asked about the presence of narcotics in the vehicle, causing the officer to request a K-9 sweep.  The K-9 alerted on the vehicle where over 2 pounds of methamphetamine were located in the trunk.   

The United States Attorney’s Office emphasizes that a criminal complaint is merely an allegation and that all persons are presumed innocent until, and unless proven guilty in court.

If convicted, any specific sentence to be imposed will be determined by the judge after a consideration of federal sentencing statutes and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.

This case is being investigated by the DEA with the assistance of the Fort Wayne Police Department.  This case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Stacey R. Speith.
