Eight-year sentence for man caught trafficking methamphetamine in Indiana

Indianapolis, Indiana – Dejohntae Zeche Keith Williams, a 30-year-old California resident, has been sentenced to eight years in a federal penitentiary subsequent to his guilty plea for possession with the intent to distribute an excess of 500 grams of methamphetamine.

The arrest ensued in May 2021 when an Indiana State Police trooper apprehended Williams, who was noted for exceeding the speed limit while driving a semi-truck on Interstate 65.

Upon conducting a search within the vehicle, the trooper discovered two sizable black duffel bags positioned on the upper bunk of the sleeping quarters of the truck. The bags contained a multitude of individually wrapped plastic parcels, housing an estimated total of 162 one-pound packages of methamphetamine, aggregating approximately 72 kilograms in total.

Further into the investigation, Williams, while under questioning by Homeland Security Investigations Agents, confessed to transporting the illicit substances to Louisville, Kentucky, with the anticipation of a $30,000 payout.

The U.S. District Court Judge, Jane Magnus Stinson, handed down the prison sentence. Post incarceration, Williams will be subject to three years of supervised probation.
