California Methamphetamine and Firearm Dealer Sentenced to Seven Years in Federal Prison
Dub Mailed Rifle and Five Kilograms of Methamphetamine to Maryland in U.S. Mail
Greenbelt, Md., – U.S. District Judge Paul W. Grimm sentenced Harjit Singh Dub, age 27, of Moreno Valley, California to seven years in federal prison, followed by five years of supervised release, for distribution of methamphetamine.
The sentence was announced by Jarod Forget, Special Agent in Charge of the DEA Washington Division; Jonathan F. Lenzner, Acting United States Attorney for the District of Maryland; and Chief Marcus Jones of the Montgomery County Police Department.
According to his plea agreement, Dub mailed two parcels, the first parcel contained five kilograms of methamphetamine and another which contained a 39-caliber rifle to a P.O. Box in December 2019. Law enforcement officers intercepted the parcels from a Spencerville, Maryland post office, where they were searched pursuant to search warrants.
After shipping the parcels to Maryland, Dub traveled to Maryland to collect the money for the methamphetamine and rifle in person. As stated in the plea agreement, Dub traveled from California to the Washington National Airport where Dub unknowingly met with an undercover officer. While en route from the airport to Rockville, Maryland, Dub not only stated that he shipped the methamphetamine and the rifle, but that he also could ship firearm silencers and large quantities of cocaine and heroin.
This case is part of an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) investigation.
SAC Forget commended the DEA agents and U.S. Attorney's office for their work in the investigation.
