Repeat Offender Sentenced to 125 Months in Federal Prison for Dealing Methamphetamine

EUGENE, Ore.—Randall Neal Wynn, 59, of Goshen, Oregon, was sentenced today to 125 months in federal prison and five years’ supervised release for possessing methamphetamine.

According to court documents, Wyn’s criminal history spans nearly four decades. His drug, gun and elude offenses date back to the 1980s, and he has previously been sentenced to prison on at least six separate occasions, including a 17-year sentence imposed in 1993.

After multiple supervised release violations and four additional years in prison, Wynn’s criminal behavior continued. A Lane County Interagency Narcotics Team (INET) investigation revealed, in 2017, that Wynn was again dealing methamphetamine. INET arrested Wynn twice in 2017, after searches led to the seizure of narcotics, weapons and cash.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) also investigated Wynn, as did the City of Springfield and Cottage Grove, Oregon Police Departments. On March 22, 2018, ATF arrested Wynn in Cottage Grove, seizing more than a pound of methamphetamine and a quarter pound of heroin.

Wynn’s criminal conduct has repeatedly endangered the public. In 1985, Wynn eluded police in a vehicle, nearly striking two officers; in 1993, while under the influence of drugs and alcohol, he seriously injured a woman in a head-on crash, causing her to be taken by life flight to a Portland-area hospital; and on multiple occasions in 2018, Wynn evaded police in dangerous vehicle escapes.

On December 12, 2018, Wynn pleaded guilty to two counts of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.

This case was investigated by ATF, INET and the City of Springfield and Cottage Grove Police Departments, with assistance from the U.S. Marshals Service. It was prosecuted by Jeffrey Sweet, Assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Oregon, working with the Lane County District Attorney’s Office.
