Las Vegas Man Sentenced to 5 Years for Meth Distribution
ST. LOUIS – U.S. District Judge Ronnie L. White sentenced Gregory Simms to 60 months in prison today. The 33-year-old Las Vegas resident previously pleaded guilty in March to possession with the intent to distribute more than 50 grams of methamphetamine.
On June 13, 2020, St. Charles County police stopped Simms for driving a vehicle 80 miles per hour in a 60 mile-per-hour zone on eastbound Interstate 70 between Bryan Road and Highway K.
A subsequent search of Simms’ vehicle revealed 377 grams of methamphetamine. Simms admitted to the officer he was transporting “ice,” a slang term for crystal methamphetamine, to St. Louis.
The Drug Enforcement Administration assisted the St. Charles County Police Department with investigating the case.
