Rogers Man Sentenced To Over 12 Years In Federal Prison For Distribution Of Methamphetamine

Fayetteville, Arkansas – Duane (DAK) Kees, United States Attorney for the Western District of Arkansas, announced that Christopher Scott, age 35 of Rogers, was sentenced today to 151 months in federal prison and four years of supervised release on one count of distribution of methamphetamine. The Honorable Timothy L. Brooks presided over the sentencing hearing in the United States District Court in Fayetteville.

According to court records, in the spring of 2017, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) learned that methamphetamine was being distributed in Northwest Arkansas by Scott.  In May of 2017, the DEA arranged and conducted a controlled purchase of methamphetamine from Scott.  The substance purchased was sent to the DEA South Central Laboratory for testing. The lab determined that the substance contained 26.105 grams of actual methamphetamine.

This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration and local law enforcement agencies. Assistant United States Attorney Kim Harris prosecuted the case for the United States.
