NEW ORLEANS– Quincy White, age 43, a resident of Alabama, was sentenced on April 18 to 188 months imprisonment, 5 years of supervised release, and a mandatory $100 special assessment fee by U.S. District Judge Greg G. Guidry.  White had previously pled guilty to a one-count indictment charging him with possession with the intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine in violation of Title 21, United States Code, Sections 841(a)(1) and 841(b)(1)(A), announced U.S. Attorney Duane A. Evans.

  According to court documents, on October 24, 2021, federal and local agencies conducted a controlled delivery of 970 grams of pure methamphetamine to White.  The delivery occurred in the parking lot of a Home Depot in LaPlace, Louisiana.  After being arrested, White admitted he paid $10,000 for the packages of “methamphetamine” that were located inside the spare tire of the vehicle he was driving.

  This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office, and the St. John Parish Sheriff’s Office.  The prosecution was handled by Assistant United States Attorney Lynn E. Schiffman of the Narcotics Unit.
