INDIANAPOLIS – A leader of a methamphetamine trafficking organization has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison.
Carl Lee, 45, of Indianapolis, plead guilty to conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and conspiracy to launder monetary instruments.
According to court documents, in June 2018, federal and local law enforcement were investigating the drug trafficking activities of Lee. He was selling large amounts of crystal meth in and around the Indianapolis area, supplying a pound of meth to various people who would then sell the drug to their customers.
Between September 2016 and May 2018, Lee repeatedly utilized nominees to send the drug proceeds back to his California based source of supply.
He was helped by his brother, Lewis Thurman, who was charged separately, pled guilty, and was sentenced to 16 years in federal prison for his drug trafficking activity.
