HOUSTON - Three local men have been ordered to federal prison following their convictions of possession with the intent to distribute methamphetamine, announced Acting U.S. Attorney Abe Martinez. Marco Zuniga, 25, Frank Flores, 25, Chance Nutt, 40, and Clifton Johnson,42, all had previously guilty to the charges.

 

Today, U.S. District Judge Gray Miller ordered Flores to serve a 168-month term of imprisonment, while Zuniga, Nutt and Johnson will serve respective sentences of 78, 46 and 48 months in federal prison.

 

The investigation began in July 2014 when authorities made undercover purchases of methamphetamine in the Houston area. During that investigation, agents purchased or seized approximately one kilogram of high quality methamphetamine.

 

Flores was initially after he led authorities on a high-speed chase, during which time he threw approximately a ½ pound of methamphetamine from his car. Upon his eventual arrest, agents discovered a firearm in the glove compartment of his car.

 

All of the men sentenced today will remain in custody pending transfer to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility to be determined in the near future.

 

The Drug Enforcement Administration, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, U.S. Marshals Service, Navasota Police Department and sheriff's offices in Harris and Montgomery Counties conducted the investigation with assistance from District Attorney's Offices in Harris and Montgomery Counties. Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Stabe is prosecuting the case.
