Tallahassee, Florida (WTXL) – A man from Tallahassee was sentenced to federal prison for methamphetamine.
Jason R. Coody, Attorney General of the North Florida District, announced Thursday that 43-year-old Emanuel Beach has been sentenced to 30 years in federal prison.
Beach pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine on February 18th.
According to court documents, in 2020, Beach came under the scrutiny of the Leon County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) as a person involved in drug trafficking.
According to the North District Attorney’s Office of Florida, a traffic stop in December 2020 by LCSO officers revealed that Beach had 27 grams of methamphetamine, which was later identified as pure. Further investigation revealed that Beach was involved in the distribution of several pounds of methamphetamine in Tallahassee.
Because Beach had two previous drug-related convictions, Beach was appointed to reinforce his sentence as a career offender.
After serving 30 years in prison, Beach will be subjected to 8 years of supervision under supervision.
“I am proud of our federal, state and local partners for their tireless efforts to maintain our security and play an important role in our efforts to remove addictive and deadly substances from our communities,” said U.S. Attorney Kudi. “We will continue to support the efforts of our law enforcement partners as we work together to investigate and prosecute criminals who bring drugs to North Florida.”
