A Braymer man has received a federal sentence for his role in a conspiracy to distribute substantial quantities of methamphetamine.
41 year old Jason M. Potter was found guilty in February for one count of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and one count of possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute. He was sentenced to 30 years in federal prison without parole.
The U.S. Attorney’s office says Potter and 52 year old Daniel Dryden were part of methamphetamine distribution operation from the middle of May to the middle to July in 2020. Dryden previously received a 3 year federal prison sentence for his role in the conspiracy.
Potter was initially arrested on an outstanding parole warrant and was in possession of 4.8 grams of methamphetamine and $3,610 in cash. After a search of a computer bag in his vehicle, officers found nearly 650 grams of methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, and a money bag with more than $3,000 in cash. He used a motel in Lee’s Summit as a central point for methamphetamine distribution.
