Three Indicted for Methamphetamine Trafficking

APR 20 (SACRAMENTO, Calif.) – A federal grand jury returned an 11-count indictment Thursday against Donnie Phillips, 56, of Concord; Gordon Miller, 57, of Clayton; and Phyliss Mosher, 51, of Vallejo, charging them with conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and related methamphetamine trafficking charges.
 
According to court documents, between June 2014 and February 2015, Mosher sold large amounts of methamphetamine to an undercover agent. Phillips and Miller supplied the methamphetamine to Mosher. Transactions took place in the counties of Solano, Contra Costa, Yolo, Shasta, and San Joaquin.

This case is the product of an investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Vallejo Police Department, and the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office as part of an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF). The OCDETF program was established in 1982 to conduct comprehensive, multilevel attacks on major drug trafficking and money laundering organizations. The principal mission of the OCDETF program is to identify, disrupt, and dismantle the most serious drug trafficking and money laundering organizations and those primarily responsible for the nation’s drug supply.

If convicted, each defendant faces a maximum statutory penalty of life in prison and a $10 million fine. Any sentence, however, would be determined at the discretion of the court after consideration of any applicable statutory factors and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, which take into account a number of variables. The charges are only allegations; the defendants are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
