"Mr. Grundy was under the mistaken impression he and his crew could run their criminal enterprise and flaunt their illegal activities in the face of the law without fear of consequence. Today’s sentence sends a strong and clear message to him and others – illegal drug trafficking, witness intimidation and violence will not be tolerated in Indianapolis, or anywhere in Indiana," said Special Agent in Charge Grant Mendenhall, FBI Indianapolis. "The FBI’s partnerships in this case were vital to a successful investigation, and the willingness of the U.S. Attorney’s Office to aggressively prosecute this group was important to putting others involved in similar criminal activities on notice that there is zero tolerance for their unlawful actions."
