Medaryville man sentenced to 40 years for possessing 4 pounds of meth

MARSHALL COUNTY, Ind. -- A man who was convicted of possessing nearly 4 pounds of methamphetamine will serve 40 years in prison, according to the Marshall County Prosecutor's Office.

James Miller, 55, was sentenced on Wednesday to 30 years for possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine and 16 years for possession of methamphetamine. The sentences will be served concurrently.

He was also sentenced to 10 years in prison for being a habitual offender. The 10 year sentence must be served consecutive to his 30 year sentence.

In January 2019, a Bremen Police officer conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle driven by Miller's sister in law. Because she had suspended license and Miller didn't have a license, the vehicle was searched before it was towed, reports said.

Inside the vehicle, police found 4 pounds of meth. Miller said he was delivering it to another person in exchange for $500 and a half ounce, reports said.

Miller was convicted following a jury trial on March 23 and 24.
