Two men sentenced in large-scale meth distribution conspiracy
JEFFERSON CITY – Two Jefferson City men were sentenced in federal court Thursday for their roles in a large-scale meth distribution conspiracy.
Javier Rosser was ordered to spend six years in federal prison without parole. Robert Istill McNair was sentenced to three years without parole.
They are the last of five people who admitted to participating in a conspiracy to distribute nearly 2,600 grams of meth from January 2016 to April 2017.
James Alexander Larkins of Columbia and Bria Royale Lanier-Richie of St. Louis pleaded guilty Wednesday, while Shadeed Seifullah Muhammad, from Compton, California, pleaded guilty in March.
The conspiracy involved mailing packages from California to Jefferson City and the exchange of money via an online back transfer.
One package was seized by law enforcement March 9, 2016. It was sent to a postal laboratory where it tested positive for 894 grams of meth.
A second package sent April 4, 2016 tested positive for 810 grams of meth. And a third package mailed March 30, 2017 contained 856 grams.
At least $5,500 exchanged hands during the conspiracy.
The Drug Enforcement Administration, the FBI and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service all took part in the investigation.
