Man sentenced to 15 years for mail drug scheme
KANSAS CITY (AP) — A former Kansas City, Missouri, man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for his role in a conspiracy to distribute PCP through the mail.
The U.S. attorney's office said in a release Friday that 57-year-old Michael Garrett was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison without parole. He pleaded guilty earlier to his role in the drug-trafficking conspiracy and to using a telephone to distribute PCP.
Co-defendant, 65-year-old Carol Barfield, pleaded guilty to her role in the conspiracy and awaits sentencing.
Prosecutors said the scheme, which ran from November 2015 to May 2016, involved Garrett mailing bottles of PCP from California to separate addresses on Barfield's Kansas City postal route. Prosecutors said Barfield then delivered the packages to their intended recipients rather than to the false addresses provided.
