Detroit Man Sentenced to Federal Prison for Drug Crime

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

 BECKLEY, W.Va. – United States Attorney Mike Stuart announced today that Kwaine Brengettcy, 34, of Detroit, was sentenced to 70 months in federal prison for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.

“100% pure meth,” said United States Attorney Mike Stuart.  “Meth is wreaking havoc on our communities.  With each prosecution of a meth dealer like Brengettcy, we are taking back our streets and fighting for families who have lost loved ones to overdose.”

Brengettcy previously pled guilty and admitted that on February 28, 2020, law enforcement officers executed a search warrant on a residence in Beckley. As the officers entered, they observed Brengettcy jump up and flee to the back room. They later located 21 grams of methamphetamine inside his jacket pocket. Brengettcy also had rented a hotel room nearby, which was searched by law enforcement. Inside, they discovered $10,576 in U.S. currency. Some of the bills in that sum of cash were marked as being used in previous controlled drug buys by law enforcement.

Brengettcy was interviewed and admitted to bringing methamphetamine from Detroit to Beckley, and that he had been selling methamphetamine in the area for at least four months prior to his arrest. The methamphetamine that was recovered was sent to a Department of Homeland Security laboratory, where it was tested and proved to be 100% pure methamphetamine.

The case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) and the Beckley Raleigh County Drug and Violent Crime Unit. United States District Judge Frank W. Volk imposed the sentence. Assistant United States Attorney L. Alexander Hamner handled the prosecution.

A copy of this press release is located on the website of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of West Virginia. Related court documents and information can be found on PACER by searching for Case No. 5:20-cr-00067.
