Meth Sentence

Posted on 31st January 2011 at 08:56

One of the ringleaders of a major meth sales ring that was based in the local area is heading to Federal prison for more than 13 years, sentenced last week in U. S. District Court in Tacoma. The U. S. Attorney’s Office reports that Anthony Reisbeck, 43, of Silver Lake will also have five years of supervised release after his sentence is completed. They say that Reisbeck was the leader of a meth distribution ring that was based in the Longview-Kelso area, distributing pounds of meth each week. In May of 2009, Reisbeck sold drugs to an undercover informant, then he was arrested just less than one year ago. At the time of his arrest, Reisbeck was in possession of nearly 12 ounces of meth, marijuana and $6,100 cash. After his arrest, Reisbeck tried to run the enterprise from jail, but those calls were monitored and recorded by law enforcement. Reisbeck is the third of four people arrested, convicted and sentenced in connection with this ring. Michael Waddington and Randy Chalupa were both sentenced to ten years in prison. The last co-conspirator facing Federal charges, Erica Lewis, will be sentenced next month.
