GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - A Milwaukee man has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for a meth operation in Northeast Wisconsin.
Levester R. Brown, 33, appeared in federal court in Green Bay March 5 to learn his sentence for the crime.
Federal prosecutors say Brown repeatedly travelled from his home in Milwaukee to Phoenix, Arizona, to buy pure methamphetamine. Brown would use the U.S. Postal Service to ship the meth to people in Milwaukee and Brown Deer. He would then take the drugs to his main distributor in Green Bay.
On June 6, 2017, special agents with the Drug Enforcement Administration and U.S. Postal Inspection Service arrested Brown as he tried to ship about nine pounds of meth to his associates in Wisconsin.
During sentencing, Chief U.S. District Court Judge William C. Griesbach told Brown that his crime called for a "harsh sentence."
Brown was also ordered to serve 10 years on federal supervised release after his prison term.
