ALBUQUERQUE – Marc Wren, 49, of Odessa, Texas, was sentenced today in federal court in Albuquerque, N.M., to 87 months in prison followed by four years of supervised release for his methamphetamine trafficking conviction.

 

Wren was charged by a criminal complaint filed on April 20, 2016, with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute on March 26, 2016, in Bernalillo County, N.M. Wren subsequently was indicted on that same charge on May 10, 2016.

 

According to court documents, Wren was arrested following a traffic stop after law enforcement officers determined that there was an outstanding arrest warrant for him in Texas. During a search incident to the arrest, the officers learned that Wren was in possession of approximately 107.6 grams of methamphetamine, which Wren had concealed in his pant leg.

 

On May 30, 2017, Wren pled guilty to the indictment and admitted that on March 26, 2016, he was in possession of methamphetamine, which he intended to distribute to others.

 

This case was investigated by the Albuquerque office of the DEA and the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Letitia C. Simms.
