BILLINGS – The U.S. Attorney’s Office announced today that Donald Theodore Fuller, 34, of Greycliff was convicted of possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute and sentenced to 10 years in prison and 5 years of supervised release.
In May 2016, Billings Police received a tip about a man selling meth from a local hotel room. Based on the tip, officers were able to determine which room he rented. Eastern Montana HIDTA Task Force agents also assisted in the investigation and they eventually obtained a search warrant for the room.
When agents executed the warrant, Fuller was in the room. Agents seized 397.6 grams of pure meth, two firearms, $79,790 in U.S. currency, and multiple items of drug paraphernalia. The 397.6 grams of pure meth converts to 3,176 individual doses.
This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions reinvigorated PSN in 2017 as part of the Department’s renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement and the local community to develop effective, locally-based strategies to reduce violent crime.
