U.S. Attorney's Office, Southern District of Alabama

MOBILE, AL – A Theodore, Alabama, man was sentenced to 90 months in prison for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine.

According to court documents, Jason Duane Reynolds, 44, was involved with several others in a large-scale conspiracy in which significant amounts of methamphetamine were distributed in Mississippi and Alabama. Reynolds was stopped in a vehicle by Mobile County Sheriff’s deputies in April of 2022 and methamphetamine was found in his vehicle. Information obtained during an ensuing investigation established that Reynolds was connected with conspirators on whom local and federal investigators had already identified as methamphetamine targets. Reynolds was held accountable for approximately 224 grams of methamphetamine actual that was distributed during the conspiracy, while other conspirators were involved with multiple kilograms of the substance.  

United States District Court Judge Kristi K. Dubose imposed the 90-month sentence, and ordered that Reynolds serve 5 years of supervised release upon completion of his imprisonment. Drug abuse testing and treatment was ordered as a special condition of Reynolds’ supervision. The judge did not impose a fine, but ordered that Reynolds pay $100 in special mandatory assessments.     

U.S. Attorney Sean P. Costello of the Southern District of Alabama made the announcement.

The Mobile County Sheriff’s Office, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Mobile Police Department, the Drug Enforcement Administration and Homeland Security Investigations investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Gloria A. Bedwell prosecuted the case on behalf of the United States.

The investigation was part of an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF)  operation. OCDETF identifies, disrupts, and dismantles the highest-level drug traffickers, money launderers, gangs and transnational criminal organization that threaten the United States by using a prosecutor-led, intelligence-driven, multi-agency approach that leverages the strengths of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies against criminal networks.
