Authorities charge Utah man with meth distribution

hands jail

A 37-year-old man from Roy, Utah, is facing methamphetamine distribution charges after Box Elder County and the FBI conducted a joint sting operation. Authorities accuse the man of distributing drugs for a Mexican drug cartel.

Drug distribution charges are serious and can result in lengthy prison sentences. If convicted, the man may serve up to 15 years in jail according to the Salt Lake Tribune. Authorities say that they arrested the man at a drug meet up in Box Elder County. The man was previously arrested in Roy in 2008 but fled his federal indictment by going to Mexico.

Authorities say that the man reentered the country to re-establish his meth distribution operation. The man allegedly served Idaho and northern Utah on behalf of the Mexican Sinaloa cartel. The man's most recent arrest happened in Tremonton, approximately 35 miles north of Ogden.

FBI officials claim to have seized four pounds of meth in the man's car, which has a street value of around $100,000. It is highly unlikely that the man will receive bail for his most recent meth arrest given his history of bail jumping and fleeing the country. The primary purpose of bail is to secure a defendant's return to court. Prior acts of bail jumping often preclude bail of subsequent crimes.
