ALBANY, NEW YORK - Matthan Carroll, age 36, of Albany, was sentenced today to 94 months in prison following his convictions for the distribution of methamphetamine, making fake government identification documents, using others’ identification information to open a U.S. Post Office Box, and aggravated identity theft.

The announcement was made by United States Attorney Carla B. Freedman; Matthew Scarpino, Acting Special Agent in Charge of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), Buffalo Field Office; and Ketty Larco-Ward, Postal Inspector in Charge of the Boston Division of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service (USPIS).

As part of his prior guilty plea, Carroll admitted to selling a total of 277.41 grams of methamphetamine and sending a portion of that methamphetamine through the U.S. mail. Carroll also admitted to opening a Clifton Park P.O. Box—using other people’s personally identifying information without their permission—in order to receive mailed shipments of methamphetamine. He also admitted to making two fake government identification documents, one of which used another person’s personally identifying information without that person’s permission, bearing Carroll’s photograph.

Chief United States District Judge Glenn T. Suddaby also sentenced Carroll to a 3-year term of supervised release to begin after he serves his term of imprisonment.

This case was investigated by HSI and USPIS, with the assistance of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Ashlyn Miranda.
