A drug trafficker from Idaho was sentenced to life in federal prison, U.S. Attorney Josh Hurwit announced on January 27. 46-year-old Adam Lee Vallely, of Blackfoot, was found guilty of conspiracy to distribute controlled substances, possession with the intent to distribute methamphetamine, and possession with the intent to distribute heroin.
A jury found Vallely guilty after a week-long jury trial in June 2022. According to court records and evidence presented at trial, Vallely engaged in a drug trafficking conspiracy with others in southeast Idaho from December 2017 to August 2018. Evidence established that Vallely participated in trafficking large quantities of methamphetamine and heroin from a source of supply based in Mexico.
Evidence further established that Vallely had a source of supply in Salt Lake City that provided methamphetamine and heroin, and that Vallely and his co-conspirators attempted to get large quantities of cocaine from the Salt Lake City source of supply.
In May 2018, during the search of a residence where Vallely was known to reside, law enforcement agents found methamphetamine, heroin, $15,000 in United States currency, and a money counting machine. At the time of the search Vallely was found hiding in an attic. Once in jail, Vallely continued to participate in the conspiracy, arranging for the collection of drug debts with the use of force.
Vallely has a lengthy and violent criminal history that includes convictions for attempted strangulation, assault with a dangerous weapon, domestic violence, and possession with intent to distribute heroin. Vallely was on state supervision at the time of the instant offense.
