SHREVEPORT, La. – Acting U.S. Attorney Alexander C. Van Hook announced that a man from Homer was sentenced Thursday to 120 months in prison for possessing with intent to distribute methamphetamine after a bag containing the drug was found in a relative’s clothes dryer.


Vincent McDaniel, 44, of Homer, La., was sentenced by U.S. District Judge S. Maurice Hicks Jr. on one count of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. He was also sentenced to 10 years of supervised release. According to the March 9, 2017 guilty plea, a relative of the defendant contacted law enforcement on November 12, 2015 to report that she had found something suspicious in a bag, which was left in the clothes dryer at her home in Homer. After examining and testing the contents of the bag, law enforcement determined it was 526.7 grams of methamphetamine. McDaniel had asked for access to the home while the relative was away, and after his arrest, had asked other relatives to retrieve the bag for him before law enforcement could obtain it.


The DEA and the Homer Police Department conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney James G. Cowles prosecuted the case.
