Man Sentenced to 10 Years After Being Caught with Fentanyl, Methamphetamine
ST. LOUIS – U.S. District Judge Rodney W. Sippel on Thursday sentenced a man caught with methamphetamine and fentanyl to 10 years in prison.
Antoine Demetrius Meeks, 31, was caught by the O’Fallon Police Department with 208 grams of methamphetamine and 26 grams of fentanyl during an August 19, 2022, traffic stop.
Meeks pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in St. Louis in December to possession with intent to distribute controlled substances. He was on federal supervised release at the time of the drug offense after a conviction in a 2015 case for being a felon in possession of a firearm.
The Drug Enforcement Administration investigated this case with the O’Fallon Police (Mo.) Department and the St. Ann (Mo.) Police Department.
