Albany man sentenced to 15 years in prison for conspiracy to distribute meth

An Albany man was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison last week, according to Z93 Radio in Monticello.

Jeremy Lynch, 42, pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiracy to distribute 500 grams or more of methamphetamine in July.

In 2019, a hotel room occupied by Lynch was searched by law enforcement, where around one pound of methamphetamine was found. Another pound of meth was found in a vehicle used by Lynch.

Lynch admitted he was in possession of the meth and intended to distribute it to others in neighboring Wayne County.

The investigation was conducted by the Monticello Police Department and the DEA.
