The U.S Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma announced that Robbie Lee Holmes, age 31, of Bunch was sentenced to 80 months’ imprisonment, and 5 years of supervised release for Drug Conspiracy. The charges arose from an investigation by the Tahlequah Police Department, the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office, the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Office, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
The Superseding Indictment alleged that beginning in or about September 2017, and continuing up to and including the date of the Superseding Indictment, within the Eastern District of Oklahoma and elsewhere, the Defendant knowingly and intentionally conspired and agreed with others to possess with intent to distribute and distribute methamphetamine, a Schedule II controlled substance.
U.S. Attorney Brian J. Kuester said, “Hundreds of people die every year in Oklahoma as a result of methamphetamine. That is why local, state, tribal and federal law enforcement agencies continue to diligently pursue drug trafficking organizations responsible for delivery and distribution of this deadly drug in Oklahoma and throughout the country. Because of successful multi-agency investigations like this one, we continue to identify the distribution networks and organizations that deliver the drugs and the tragic outcomes that follow.”
”The availability of illegal drugs and guns lends to increased violent crime in our communities,” stated ATF Special Agent in Charge Jeffrey C. Boshek II. “ATF is committed to disrupting that cycle through collaborative investigations like this.”
Ronald A. White, U.S. District Judge for the Eastern District of Oklahoma, in Muskogee, presided over the hearing. Assistant U.S. Attorney Shannon Henson represented the United States.
