Foley Woman Sentenced to Fifteen Years in Methamphetamine Conspiracy

MOBILE, AL – A Foley woman was sentenced today to 180 months in prison for her participation in a conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine.

According to court documents, Amber Renee White, 46, was identified during an investigation which resulted from controlled purchases of methamphetamine ice from White at various locations in Baldwin County, Alabama. White was stopped by Baldwin County sheriff’s deputies twice in routine traffic stops and methamphetamine was discovered in the subsequent searches of the vehicle. A search warrant was obtained for her residence during the investigation and additional quantities of methamphetamine ice were recovered, along with cash, drug paraphernalia and cell phones. White was advised of her rights and she admitted her participation in a scheme to possess with intent to distribute more than 51 kilograms of methamphetamine ice from 2016 through 2018.

United States District Court Judge Callie V.S. Granade imposed the 180-month sentence and ordered that White serve a five-year term of supervised release when she is released from custody. No fine was imposed, but White was ordered to pay a special mandatory assessment of $100.

The case was investigated by the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office, the Safe Streets Task Force, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Gloria Bedwell prosecuted the case on behalf of the United States.
