New York Man Sentenced to 8 Years for Meth Conspiracy
EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. - Jeremy Inderyas, 37, of Brooklyn, New York, was sentenced in federal court on Thursday, August 18, 2022, to 100 months in prison for conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.
Inderyas had previously pled guilty in federal court to the methamphetamine conspiracy charges. As part of his guilty plea, Inderyas acknowledged he arranged a transaction involving over thirteen kilograms of methamphetamine in Phoenix, Arizona, for his co-conspirators which was seized by law enforcement officials in Madison County, Illinois, on May 13, 2018.
“Methamphetamine continues to be a scourge on our society, causing misery for countless Americans across our nation,” said United States Attorney Rachelle Aud Crowe. “With its major interstate highway systems, our district plays a key role in detecting and disrupting the flow of methamphetamine across the country. This prosecution and sentence demonstrate how seriously we take that responsibility.”
This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration.
