Acting U.S. Attorney Duane A. Evans announced that ROBERT CASE, age 47, of New Orleans, was sentenced today after previously pleading guilty to conspiracy to distribute and to possess with the intent to distribute five hundred (500) grams or more of a mixture or substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine.
U.S. District Judge Kurt D. Engelhardt sentenced CASE to 100 months imprisonment, followed by 5 years of supervised release.
According to court documents, CASE was arrested on January 9, 2015 when a United States Postal Inspector intercepted two packages sent through the Postal Service found to contain methamphetamine. The Inspector posed as a letter carrier to deliver the packages to the suspect’s uptown apartments and then executed a search warrant on the residence, finding additional drugs and drug paraphernalia.
Acting U.S. Attorney Evans praised the work of the United States Postal Inspection Service and the Drug Enforcement Administration for investigating this matter. Assistant United States Attorneys James S. C. Baehr, Matthew Payne and Special Assistant United States Attorney Ryan McLaren were in charge of the prosecution.
