Man sentenced in Columbia meth conspiracy
JEFFERSON CITY- Kameron Terrell Howard, 26, of Compton, California, pleaded guilty to participating in a conspiracy to distribute metamphetamine in Columbia. He was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison without parole.
Co-defendants Melissa Guerra, Jeremy Dennis Maxwell and Stephanie Anne Maxwell of Columbia and Calvanisha Yvette West of California also pleaded guilty to the same charge. They are waiting sentencing.
Federal prosecutors said drug canines alerted postal services of a suspicious package mailed from California to Guerra's address in November of 2015. Investigators found 444.8 grams of pure methamphetamine. Another package identified the same day contained almost 1.4 kilograms of pure methamphetamine.
Later that week, SWAT teams apprehended the suspects.
