Anchorage Man Sentenced to 120 Months for Conspiracy to Possess and Distribute Methamphetamine

SEP 23 (ANCHORAGE, Alaska) – Thony Yang, 24, of Fairbanks, Alaska, was sentenced on September 22, 2014, for conspiracy to possess methamphetamine with intent to distribute.  Yang was sentenced to 120 months in prison, to be followed by five years of supervised of release.

On March 5, 2014, law enforcement officers identified a suspicious package that was scheduled to be delivered to an address in Anchorage, Alaska.  Officers obtained a search warrant for the package and found 1,400 grams of actual methamphetamine inside. Law enforcement officers replaced the methamphetamine with “sham” or fake methamphetamine and then delivered the package to the Anchorage address where it was picked up by a co-conspirator of Yang.  It appeared that Yang was conducting surveillance at the residence when the packaged was delivered.  After his arrest, Yang confirmed that he was waiting for the parcel and he expected to receive a portion of the methamphetamine in the package.  Before imposing the sentence, Judge Burgess commented that Yang had dug himself into a very deep hole at a very young age.

Co-defendant Cha Tony Vue is scheduled to be sentenced on November 6, 2014. 

The case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation Division.
