For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Western District of Missouri
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Tom Larson, Acting United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced today that a Springfield, Mo., man has been sentenced in federal court for his role in a conspiracy to distribute large quantities of methamphetamine.
David A. Floyd, 44, of Springfield, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge M. Douglas Harpool on Monday, May 22, 2017, to 13 years and six months in federal prison without parole.
On Jan. 4, 2017, Floyd pleaded guilty to participating in the drug-trafficking conspiracy that lasted from June 1, 2013, to Nov. 29, 2014.
In 2013 through 2014, Daniel and Kenna Harmon, 38, of Republic, Mo., distributed in excess of 45 kilograms of methamphetamine in southwest Missouri. Floyd was one of the persons that received methamphetamine from the Harmon drug-trafficking organization during this time. Floyd personally received more than 500 grams of methamphetamine from the Harmon drug-trafficking organization, which he then distributed to other persons.
Floyd was arrested on Aug. 1, 2014, when federal agents conducted a traffic stop and searched his vehicle. Officers found approximately 322 grams of methamphetamine, which Floyd received from Kenna Harmon, and 39 grams of marijuana. Officers also discovered $3,156.
Beginning in 2012, the Drug Enforcement Administration, assisted by other agencies, investigated a large-scale methamphetamine distribution network in southwest Missouri involving several sources of supply. The investigation resulted in the indictment of 28 co-defendants.
Daniel Harmon was indicted in the Eastern District of Missouri and pleaded guilty to possessing methamphetamine with the intent to distribute and to being a felon in possession of a firearm. Kenna Harmon has pleaded guilty to being a leader in the drug-trafficking conspiracy as well as a money-laundering conspiracy and to being a felon in possession of a firearm.
This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Randall D. Eggert, Nhan D. Nguyen and Cynthia J. Hyde. It was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration, IRS-Criminal Investigation, the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the Springfield, Mo., Police Department and Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).
