48-year-old Javier Reyna of Hutchinson is charged in federal court with attempted possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.
Reyna of 531 East Sherman was arrested after a search warrant was done at an apartment at 415 East Sherman, Apt. A. That was back on December 16, of last year.
This warrant is called an anticipatory warrant. Apparently, a package was delivered to his address which allegedly contained a distribution amount of methamphetamine. It was estimated that a total of 8-ounces of meth was in the package. Drug Unit Detectives apparently knocked on his door and asked if his name was on the shipping label and he said it was. They then handed him the package and he had possession of it. They then served a search warrant at that location.
They later also served a warrant at his home, at the time being at 531 East B. They allegedly found packaging materials, a marijuana pipe as well and digital scales. The apartment on East Sherman is within a thousand feet of a school.
A Federal Grand Jury Indicted him on the single federal charge, so the charges in District Court should be dropped.
If convicted, he faces a penalty of not less than five years and not more than 40-years in federal prison and a fine up to 5-million dollars.
