Former Postal Employee Sentenced to 30 Months in Federal Prison for Fraud, Aggravated Identity Theft, and Theft of a Postal Service Key
MOBILE, AL – A Foley man was sentenced today to 168 months in prison for conspiracy to possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.
According to court documents, John Douglas Havranek, Jr., 45, was implicated in an investigation involving a group of local distributors who were receiving methamphetamine ice from outside the state. Havranek sold methamphetamine to a cooperating co-conspirator who was acting as a confidential informant for authorities. The informant obtained recorded conversation with Havranek during the controlled buy of methamphetamine in which Havranek discussed his source of supply for methamphetamine ice in California. Other cooperating co-conspirators implicated Havranek in the distribution scheme. Havranek was arranging for the shipment of packages containing methamphetamine ice from California to different addresses in the Foley area. Payment for the methamphetamine distributed locally was wired to Havranek to California to pay for the drugs. Havranek pled guilty to the conspiracy charge in May of 2021.
United States District Court Judge Terry F. Moorer imposed the sentence of 168 months imprisonment, to be followed by a supervised release term of 5 years. Special conditions of his supervision include drug testing and treatment, and a model search condition. No fine was imposed, but the judge ordered that Havranek pay $100 in special assessments.
The case was investigated by the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office, the Baldwin County Drug Task Force and Homeland Security Investigations. Assistant United States Attorney Gloria Bedwell prosecuted the case on behalf of the United States.
