A Havre man will spend nearly seven years in federal prison for his role in selling methamphetamine.
Brandon Wayne Glover, 31, pleaded guilty Jan. 9 to possession with the intent to distribute methamphetamine.
Last week in federal court in Great Falls U.S. District Judge Brian Morris sentenced Glover to 80 months in prison followed by five years supervised release, a release from the office of the U.S. Attorney for the District of Montana said.
Havre police officers and Tri-Agency Safe Trails Task Force agents conducted the investigation, which began early in 2010 after a witness said she had purchased 10 grams of meth from Glover.
The investigation showed that Glover regularly traveled to Billings to purchase meth, with one informant seeing Glover with approximately 100 baggies, each containing one gram of meth, packaged for sale
In February 2011, agents made undercover drug purchases from Glover.
During the investigation, numerous witnesses told law enforcement they regularly purchased a half of a gram to a gram of methamphetamine from Glover, and other witnesses said Glover recruited them to sell methamphetamine for him. From 2010 until at least October 2011, Glover possessed with the intent to distribute, at a minimum, more than 50 grams of a substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine, the release said.
This investigation was conducted by the Havre Police Department and the Tri-Agency Task Force.
