Matthew D. Krueger, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced that on March 5, 2018, Levester R. Brown (age: 33) of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, appeared in federal court in Green Bay and was sentenced to 120 months in federal prison for his role in a methamphetamine distribution ring in Northeast Wisconsin.
In the Spring of 2017, Brown repeatedly travelled from his residence in Milwaukee to Phoenix, Arizona, for the purpose of obtaining pounds of pure methamphetamine. Brown then utilized the U.S. Postal Service to ship the methamphetamine to acquaintances in Milwaukee and Brown Deer, Wisconsin. He would then transport the drugs to his main distributor in Green Bay.
On June 6, 2017, Special Agents with the federal Drug Enforcement Administration and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service arrested Brown as he attempted to ship approximately 9 pounds of methamphetamine to his associates in Wisconsin.
In pronouncing sentence, Chief U.S. District Court Judge William C. Griesbach noted the serious nature of Brown’s crime and the negative effect that methamphetamine has had on the community. The judge told Brown that his crime called for a harsh sentence. Following his release from prison, Brown will serve 10 years on federal supervised release.
The case was investigated by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, and the Brown County Drug Task Force. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Daniel R. Humble.
