Muskogee, OK - The United States of America charged Michael Wayne Jenkins, age 41, with felony possession of a firearm and drug trafficking.
Michael Wayne Jenkins, age 41, of Lothian, Maryland was sentenced to 60 months’ imprisonment, and 3 years of supervised release for Possession Of Firearm In Furtherance Of Drug Trafficking Crime, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 924(c). The charges arose from an investigation by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The Indictment alleged that on or about June 1, 2019, in the Eastern District of Oklahoma, the defendant knowingly possessed a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.
United States Attorney Brian J. Kuester said, “Drug trafficking and violence go hand-in-hand. By working together to investigate and enforce federal gun and drug laws, federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies make our communities safer. That is a worthwhile partnership and a priority of the Department of Justice.”
“Mr. Jenkins carried a loaded firearm while transporting illegal drugs from Texas to Maryland,” stated ATF Special Agent in Charge Jeffrey C. Boshek II. “Thanks to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol’s commitment to safety, situational awareness and strong partnerships, he will travel our nation’s interstates on a Bureau of Prisons bus for the next five years.”
The Honorable Ronald A. White, U.S. District Judge in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Oklahoma, in Muskogee, presided over the hearing. Assistant United States Attorney Dean Burris represented the United States at the sentencing hearing.
