Montana woman sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for possessing methamphetamine to distribute

MISSOULA, Mont. — A Montana woman was sentenced Wednesday to 10 years in federal prison and five years of supervised release for trafficking methamphetamine.

U.S. Attorney Kurt Alme, District of Montana, announced this sentence. This case was investigated by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), and the Northwest Drug Task Force.

Tiffany Rose Ramirez, 31, pleaded guilty in April to possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.

“We continue to fight against the illicit trade of narcotics and the devastation meth brings to local communities,” said Steven Cagen, special agent in charge of HSI Denver. “We appreciate our state and local partners aiding with this investigation, and the support of U.S. Attorney’s Office in prosecuting cases like these.”

Two confidential informants told law enforcement that they obtained methamphetamine from Ramirez. On March 17, 2018, Ramirez was driving a vehicle in Lake County, Montana, that was pulled over and later searched. The search led to the discovery of methamphetamine.

U.S. District Judge Donald W. Molloy presided; Assistant U.S. Attorney Tara Elliott, District of Montana, prosecuted this case.
