SOUTH BEND – Jessie Warren, 44 years old, of Mishawaka, Indiana, was sentenced by United States District Court Judge Damon R. Leichty after pleading guilty to possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, announced United States Attorney Clifford D. Johnson.

Warren was sentenced to 100 months in prison followed by 4 years of supervised release.

According to documents in the case, in December 2022, Warren possessed over 220 grams of methamphetamine. When police found him, he was alone in a car with the controlled substance, a firearm and a digital scale located in the trunk. Warren also had approximately $2,000 cash in his possession.

This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration with assistance from the Mishawaka Police Department and the Indiana State Police Laboratory.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Jerome McKeever and Joel Gabrielse.

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 gun violence, and to make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. On May 26, 2021, the Department launched a violent crime reduction strategy strengthening PSN based on these core principles: fostering trust and legitimacy in our communities, supporting community-based organizations that help prevent violence from occurring in the first place, setting focused and strategic enforcement priorities, and measuring the results.
