INDIANAPOLIS- Jerry Glenn, 36, of Kokomo, Indiana, was sentenced to 11 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute.
According to court documents, on July 18, 2021, at approximately 4 in the morning, Kokomo Police Department Officers found Jerry Glenn asleep in the driver seat of a parked vehicle. Officers offered Glenn a ride home. Before placing him in the squad car, officers searched Glenn and recovered 139 grams of methamphetamine in his back pocket. Glenn intended to sell and distribute the methamphetamine.
At the time of his arrest, Glenn had been previously convicted of multiple felonies related to possessing and dealing in methamphetamine and other controlled substances.
Zachary A. Myers, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Indiana and Michael Gannon, Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the DEA’s Indianapolis Field Office made the announcement.
“Methamphetamine and other controlled substances are killing far too many Hoosiers and have devastating impacts on users, their loved ones, and our communities,” said Zachary A. Myers, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Indiana. “Repeat drug dealers like this defendant must be held accountable for the suffering they cause in search of quick profits. I commend the efforts of the DEA and Kokomo Police Department to make our communities safer by getting meth and meth dealers off our streets.”
DEA and Kokomo Police Department investigated this case. The sentence was imposed by U.S. District Court Judge Sarah Evans Barker. Judge Barker also ordered that Glenn be supervised by the U.S. Probation Office for 5 years following his release from federal prison and pay a $500.00 fine.
