St. Louis County man sentenced to 10 years for drug and firearm charges
ST. LOUIS – U.S. District Judge Rodney W. Sippel sentenced Teran Martin to 120 months in prison today and ordered Martin to forfeit $23,488 and the several firearms law enforcement seized in the course of investigating the crimes charged.
The 27-year-old Ferguson, Missouri, resident had previously pleaded guilty to one count of possessing methamphetamine with intent to distribute and one count of possessing one or more firearms in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.
On January 7, 2020, Drug Enforcement Administration St. Louis Division investigators executed a federal search warrant at Martin’s residence and seized a firearm along with quantities of fentanyl, cocaine base and heroin. Investigators searched two more locations and seized additional items belonging to Martin, including 11 more firearms, additional quantities of fentanyl, cocaine base, and methamphetamine, and approximately $23,488. Martin has admitted the money seized were proceeds he obtained by selling controlled substances.
The DEA investigated the case with the St. Louis County Police Department.
