EAST ST. LOUIS (WRXX) – A 37-year-old man from New York has been sentenced in federal court in East St. Louis to more than 8 years in prison for conspiracy to distribute and possession with the intent to distribute methamphetamine in Illinois.
Jeremy Inderyas of Brooklyn, New York, was sentenced in federal court Thursday to 100 months in prison and was also ordered to serve three years of supervised release upon his release from prison.
Inderyas had previously pleaded guilty in federal court to the methamphetamine conspiracy charges.
As part of his guilty plea, Inderyas acknowledged he arranged a transaction involving over 13 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.
United States Attorney Rachelle Aud Crowe says with its major interstate highway systems; our district plays a key role in detecting and disrupting the flow of methamphetamine across the country. She says this prosecution and sentence demonstrate how seriously they take that responsibility.
This effort was part of an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF) operation.
