A Wisconsin man was sentenced today to 78 months in federal prison for possessing with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine.
Stephen Thompson, 57, of Tomah, pleaded guilty to this charge on August 31, 2022.
The government’s investigation revealed that Thompson received nine packages containing methamphetamine in the mail from Arizona at various addresses in the Tomah area.
On November 15, 2021, U.S. Postal Inspectors executed a search warrant on a parcel sent from Arizona addressed to “Stephen Thompson” at an address in Sparta, Wisconsin.

Thompson’s criminal history dates back to 1992 and includes six drug-related felonies and prior felony convictions for burglary and theft.
