Federal Judge Sentences Defendants In Colorado-Wyoming Meth Conspiracy
A Wyoming federal judge recently sentenced two people in an interstate methamphetamine conspiracy, and another judge sentenced a man for a sex offender crime, according to a news release from the Wyoming U.S. Attorney's Office.
U.S. District Court Judge Alan Johnson sentenced Anthony Jamal Walters, 37, of Loveland, Colo., for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.
Walters received 11 years two months of imprisonment, to be followed by five years of supervised release, and was ordered to pay $500 in restitution.
Johnson also sentenced Angela Lynn Perez, 38, of Greeley, Colo., for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. She received time served, to be followed by five years of supervised release, and was ordered to pay $500 in restitution.
The Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation, Northern Colorado Drug Task Force, the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration investigated these related cases.
Johnson also recently sentenced another defendant in the case, Kymber Tiernan of Cheyenne to five years three months of imprisonment, to be followed by four years of supervised release, and was ordered to pay $500 in restitution.
U.S. Attorney Office spokesman Mark Trimble said the court documents appear to have been sealed in this case.
However, the Northern Colorado Drug Task Force announced in April that a four-month-long investigation resulted in the arrests of Walters, Perez, Tiernan, Julio Cesar Quintero of Denver, and Travis Harre of Denver who allegedly operated the conspiracy that spanned from Rock Springs, Cheyenne, Fort Collins, Loveland and Denver.
The investigation resulted in the seizures of drugs, weapons, $20,000 in cash, property, three pounds of methamphetamine, small amounts of cocaine, prescription opioids, marijuana, marijuana concentrate, three motor vehicles, and 21 firearms – four of which were used in other crimes, according to the news release from the Northern Colorado Drug Task Force.
In a separate case, U.S. District Court Judge Nancy Freudenthal sentenced Kenneth Roy Gibson, 47, of Fort Collins, Colo., for failure to register as a sex offender. He received one year nine months of imprisonment, to be followed by five years of supervised release, and was ordered to pay a $500 fine and a $500 special assessment.
The U.S. Marshals Service investigated this case.
