California Man Sentenced to 42 Months for Distributing Methamphetamine in Tomah Area

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Western District of Wisconsin

MADISON, WIS. – Scott C. Blader, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, announced that Lucas Rodriguez, 29, Hemet, California, pleaded guilty and was sentenced on June 20, 2019, by U.S. District Judge William M. Conley to 42 months in prison for distributing methamphetamine.

Rodriguez mailed two packages of methamphetamine from California to Tomah, Wisconsin.  Law enforcement agents seized both packages, which contained almost 100% pure methamphetamine.  The amount of methamphetamine attributable to Rodriguez was approximately 653 grams, which Judge Conley described as a conservative estimate since the defendant likely had been selling methamphetamine for much longer.

The charge against Rodriguez was the result of an investigation conducted by the Tomah Police Department, Monroe County Joint Investigative Task Force, and U.S. Postal Inspection Service.  The prosecution of the case has been handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Diane Schlipper.
