Federal prison sentences in Burlington meth cases

stock_-_legal_-_gavel_1.jpg

Five Burlington men have been sentenced to decades in federal prison for conspiring to distribute ice methamphetamine in the area:

  • Rudolph Sinclair Allen, 37, was sentenced to 20 years in prison and five years of supervised release;
  • Clyde Macks Stewart, Jr., 51, was sentenced to 17 years in prison and five years of supervised release;
  • Demetrius Antre Goudy, 42, was sentenced to 18 years in prison and five years of supervised release;
  • Gregory Jermain Johnson, 36, was sentenced to approximately 14 years (169 months) in prison and five years of supervised release;
  • Brian Keith Davis, Jr., 42, was sentenced to 10 1/2 years in prison and five years of supervised release

The operation began in late 2019 and continued for about two years, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

According to federal court documents, three of those sentenced were middlemen who received large amounts of drugs from Kendrick Childs, 35, of Burlington.

Childs pleaded guilty and is awaiting sentencing.

The three men then sold the drugs themselves or passed them on to lower-level dealers for distribution.

A drug courier involved in the operation was stopped in Arizona in early 2020 and found to be transporting 362 pounds of ice methamphetamine bound for Burlington.
