BUFFALO, N.Y. - U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Lawrence Neubert, 46, of Spring Valley, CA, who was convicted of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute, and to distribute, 50 grams or more of methamphetamine, was sentenced to 120 months in prison by Senior U.S. District Judge William M. Skretny.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Laura A. Higgins, who handled the case, stated that on September 4, 2014, and October 2, 2014, the defendant shipped packages, containing more than 220 grams of methamphetamine, from California to Buffalo. Surveillance video from September 4, 2014, showed Neubert preparing the package and paying for its shipment in cash. In exchange for sending the packages, Neubert received $3500 in USPS money orders.

The plea is the result of an investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge James J. Hunt, New York Field Division.
