TYLER (KYTX) - Two East Texas men have been sentenced to federal prison for drug trafficking violations in the Eastern District of Texas, announced U.S. Attorney John M. Bales Wednesday. 

36-year-old Chadwick Marvin Thompson, of McKinney, pleaded guilty on Nov. 21, 2013, to conspiracy to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine and was sentenced to 240 months in federal prison today by U.S. District Judge Leonard E. Davis.  As part of his plea, Thompson has agreed to the forfeiture of $8,700 cash along with six firearms and ammunition. 

36-year-old Brandon Lee Lagrone of Carthage, Texas, pleaded guilty on Dec. 9, 2013, to using a communication facility to facilitate the commission of a felony and was sentenced to 36 months in federal prison today by U.S. District Judge Leonard E. Davis.

According to information presented in court, on multiple occasions in 2012 and 2013, Thompson sold methamphetamine and firearms to others. 

On July 20, 2013, Lagrone used a telephone to facilitate the commission of the felony offense of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.  Thompson, Lagrone and two others were indicted by a federal grand jury on Mar. 27, 2013, and charged with drug trafficking violations. 

This case was investigated by the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Mary Ann Cozby.
