The final of four defendants has been sentenced to federal prison for his part in a multi-state drug trafficking scheme. 40-year-old Charles House, of Anderson, Indiana was sentenced to 30 years in federal prison last week after a federal jury found him guilty as charged on twelve counts, including attempting to traffic methamphetamine, trafficking in over 100 kilograms of marijuana, and illegally possessing twelve firearms.
In October 2018, the Madison County Drug Task Force initiated an investigation into Charles House’s drug trafficking organization. He traveled to California to purchase narcotics and then mailed the narcotics to multiple addresses in Anderson, Indiana. The marijuana was then redistributed by co-conspirators Sean Brown and Marcus Hayes-Patterson in Anderson.
Tommy Compton was House’s Indianapolis source of supply for marijuana. All told, House procured over 8 kilograms of pure methamphetamine and over 450 kilograms of marijuana. Defendants facilitated their drug trafficking activities through the use of cellular phones and often used code words to try to conceal their illegal activities.
In addition to his drug trafficking crimes, House was convicted two counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, after law enforcement officers seized his firearms during execution of lawful searches. House is prohibited from possessing firearms under federal law, following a prior felony conviction for Dealing Marijuana and Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury.
