43 year-old Anthony Johnson pleaded guilty in Billings Federal District Court this week to charges of possession with intent to distribute dangerous drugs.

Drug Enforcement Agency personnel determined that Johnson had traveled to Colorado in March and in April. As he was returning to Montana, a Montana Highway Patrol stopped his vehicle and after a search warrant was obtained, they found 10 vacuum-sealed bricks of methamphetamine, totaling over 10 pounds of the drug, which is the equivalent of over 37,000 doses.

The very next day, DEA agents discovered that a large hole had been cut in the garage door of its storage facility. Evidence at the scene showed that Johnson had gone to the facility the night before, cut the hole and entered his vehicle that was then in DEA custody.

Johnson admitted to the Drug Enforcement Agency agents that he was in the business of distributing large amounts of meth that he had obtained from his source in Denver.
