Methamphetamine Gets Local Woman 10 Years in Federal Prison

VICTORIA, Texas - A local woman has been ordered to federal prison for 10 years following her conviction of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, announced U.S. Attorney Kenneth Magidson. Lynn Denise Bilecki, 46, of Victoria, pleaded guilty in December 2014.

Today, Senior U.S. District Judge John D. Rainey sentenced Bilecki to 120 months imprisonment to be followed by five years of supervised release.

On July 15, 2014, officers from the Special Crimes Unit of the Victoria Police Department (VPD) executed a state narcotics search warrant at Bilecki’s apartment. At that time, authorities seized methamphetamine, a digital scale, U.S. currency and a pistol grip shotgun. Laboratory analysis determined that the amount of pure methamphetamine seized was 129 grams.

In federal custody since her arrest on July 30, 2014, she will remain in custody pending transfer to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility to be designated in the near future.

The investigation was conducted by Homeland Security Investigations and VPD.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Lance Watt is prosecuting the case.
