Meth Cookers Who Burned Down Trailer Sentenced

           MARQUETTE, MICHIGAN – U.S. Attorney Patrick Miles announced today the sentencing on December 22 of Leanna Lynn Horton, age 38, and Christopher Wayne Brow, age 34, both of Marquette. Horton and Brow had each pled guilty to a single charge of conspiracy to manufacture, distribute and possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine in Marquette County from July 2013 to May 8, 2014.

          U.S. District Judge R. Allan Edgar sentenced Horton to 175 months in prison and Brow to 140 months. Detectives from the Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team (UPSET) began investigating this conspiracy on October 26, 2013, after the Marquette Fire Department responded to a trailer fire in the Birch Grove Mobile Home Community on Pioneer Road in Marquette and found a methamphetamine lab. The trailer was a complete loss and eventually had to be towed from the trailer park.
