An Indiana man was sentenced to 16 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to distributing fentanyl and methamphetamine.
According to court documents, on February 1, 2022, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents arrested Dreshaun Carter, 26, of Indianapolis, on a federal warrant for distributing methamphetamine.
DEA agents executed a search warrant at Carter’s residence, where they located over 1.5 kilograms of fentanyl, over 900 grams of methamphetamine, over 200 grams of crack cocaine, $90,123 in U.S. currency, digital scales, 19 firearms, and police body armor. Three of the firearms were stolen.

At the time of his arrest, Carter was on community corrections with GPS monitoring and had previously been convicted of a felony for dealing narcotics.
Zachary A. Myers, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Indiana, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Chief Randal Taylor, and Michael Gannon, Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the DEA’s Indianapolis Field Office made the announcement.
“His prior drug dealing felony and supervision by Community Corrections didn’t deter the defendant from pushing fentanyl, meth, and crack into our neighborhoods,” said U.S. Attorney Myers. “Even wearing a GPS monitor, he still chose to arm himself to the teeth—with nineteen guns and police body armor. The serious federal prison sentence imposed today will hopefully convince him to finally change his ways when he is released. I commend the DEA and IMPD for their investigation and commitment to protect the public from dangerous, repeat drug traffickers.”
