 WILMINGTON, N.C. – A Southport man was sentenced today to 151 months in prison for possessing with the intent to distribute five (5) grams or more of methamphetamine.  On August 13, 2020, Kevin Joseph Boyle pled guilty to the charges.

According to court documents and other information presented in court, Kevin Joseph Boyle, 64, was stopped by Brunswick County Sheriff’s Deputies on a return trip from Charlotte, NC.  The information presented showed that between July 20, 2019 and July 21, 2019, a GPS tracking device on Boyle’s truck indicated that Boyle traveled to Charlotte and then back towards Brunswick County.  Once in Brunswick County, deputies with Brunswick County stopped Boyle’s truck after the vehicle crossed the center line of the highway.  Boyle allowed law enforcement to search his truck.  A K9 gave a positive indication for the presence of narcotics in the vehicle.  Law enforcement found a magnetic box located in the rear passenger side tire well containing methamphetamine.   Interviews from cooperating witnesses confirmed that Boyle travelled to Charlotte on a regular basis to resupply with methamphetamine and further confirmed that Boyle was a major source of methamphetamine in Southport. 

G. Norman Acker, III, Acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of North Carolina made the announcement after sentencing by Chief U.S. District Judge Richard E. Myers II. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) investigated the case and Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Murphy Averitt  prosecuted the case.  This case is part of the Take Back North Carolina Initiative of the United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of North Carolina.  This initiative emphasizes the regional assignment of federal prosecutors to work with law enforcement and District Attorney’s Offices on a sustained basis in those communities to reduce the violent crime rate, drug trafficking, and crimes against law enforcement.
