SCRANTON, Pa. (WHTM) —

A 37-year-old Midstate man was sentenced to 127 months’ imprisonment on Friday, for conspiracy to distribute more than 500 grams of methamphetamine.

The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced Angel Romeu, of St. Clair, Pennsylvania, will be subject to five years of supervised release by United States District Court Judge Robert D. Mariani, in addition to his 127 months of imprisonment.

According to authorities, Romeu conspired to distribute over 1.5 kilograms of methamphetamine in Schuylkill County between October 1, 2015, and April 9, 2016.

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. The Department of Justice reinvigorated PSN in 2017 as part of the Department’s renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement and the local community to develop effective, locally-based strategies to reduce violent crime.
