Two men were sentenced this morning after conspiring with others to distribute methamphetamine and heroin, announced U.S. Attorney Trent Shores.
Kendrick Johnson, 38, and Marcus Collay, 45, were sentenced before Chief U.S. District Judge John E. Dowdell. Johnson received a sentence of 120 months in prison followed by five years of supervised release. His possession of 11 firearms was considered in this sentence. Collay received a sentence of 51 months in prison followed by four years of supervised release.
“It seems like every week I am making a statement about the prosecution of a methamphetamine trafficking conspiracy. This drug continues to be the scourge of our state, wrecking lives and destroying families. Thank goodness the DEA and Tulsa Police are relentless in their efforts to combat methamphetamine,” said U.S. Attorney Trent Shores. “Defendants Collay and Johnson are part of the meth problem and now they’re dealing with the consequences for their actions.”
In a blind plea, Johnson stated that he voluntarily conspired with others in a drug conspiracy that involved methamphetamine. Collay, in his written plea agreement, admitted to intentionally possessing with intent to distribute methamphetamine and heroin. Specifically, Collay stated that he supplied distribution amounts of methamphetamine and heroin to Johnson and other third parties.
The Drug Enforcement Administration and the Tulsa Police Department conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Joel-lyn A. McCormick is prosecuting the case. AUSA McCormick serves as the lead attorney for the United States Attorney’s Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces.
