A Spiro man was sentenced in U.S. District Court for possession of methamphetamine, thanks to an investigation by the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration.
William Lynn Burrough, 45, was sentenced to 168 months imprisonment followed by five years of supervised release for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, the U.S. attorney’s office in Muskogee announced Wednesday.
The indictment alleged that on June 9 Burrough had 50 grams or more of methamphetamine in his possession.
Burrough will remain in the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service pending transportation to a federal prison where he will serve his non-paroleable sentence.
