Chief Federal District Court Judge Scott W. Skavdahl sentenced CECIL EUGENE CROW, 56, and REBECCA ALLISON McINTOSH, 59, both of Grand Junction, Colorado for firearm and drug related charges. Crow was sentenced to eighty months of imprisonment to be followed by sixty months of supervised release for the charge of carrying a firearm during and in relation to a drug trafficking crime. McIntosh received seventy months imprisonment for the charge of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and will be on supervised release for three years. Both were arrested in Cortez, Colorado.
Beginning in February of 2017, the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) began an investigation into a drug trafficking organization in the Natrona County, Wyoming area. Through the investigation, agents with the DCI Central Enforcement Team obtained information that Rebecca McIntosh was traveling to California, obtaining large quantities of methamphetamine and returning to Natrona County in order to deliver the methamphetamine to a co-conspirator. As part of the investigation, agents were tracking McIntosh’s vehicle movements as she traveled from Colorado to California and then back toward Wyoming. Later with the help of the Wyoming Highway Patrol, DCI agents conducted a traffic stop on McIntosh’s vehicle. McIntosh and her husband, Cecil Eugene Crow, were found in the vehicle. A search of the vehicle led to the discovery of one pound of methamphetamine, which was hidden in a secret compartment, and a loaded firearm.
This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions reinvigorated PSN in 2017 as part of the Department’s renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement and the local community to develop effective, locally based strategies to reduce violent crime.
