PEORIA, Ill. – Todd C. Smith, Assistant Special Agent in Charge at U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration-Chicago, and U.S. Attorney Gregory K.

At the sentencing hearing before U.S. District Judge Joe B. McDade, the United States presented evidence that on March 2, 2022, Bartonville police officers performed a traffic stop on a car that Mammen was driving. The officers noticed a black fanny pack on the floorboard. The bag was open, and officers saw that it contained cash and clear ziplock baggies. Mammen got out of the car and informed the officers that there were drugs inside the fanny pack. The bag contained 108 grams of methamphetamine, 27.6 grams of cocaine, and $987.
Mammen was indicted on March 15, 2022, and pleaded guilty on May 13, 2022. He has remained in the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service since March 2022.
The statutory penalties for possession with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine are 10 years to life imprisonment, a fine of up to $250,000 and a five-year to life term of supervised release. The penalties for possession with intent to distribute cocaine are up to 20 years’ imprisonment, a fine of up to $250,000 and at least three years of supervised release.
The DEA investigated the case, with the assistance of the Bartonville, Pekin and Peoria Police Departments. Assistant U.S. Attorney Keith Hollingshead-Cook represented the United States in the prosecution.
