PHOENIX, Ariz. – Last week, Brandon (Brandi) Greenberg, 30, of Phoenix, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge John J. Tuchi to 50 months in prison, followed by 48 months of supervised release. Greenberg previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy and distribution of methamphetamine.
Over a nine-month period in 2018 and 2019, Greenberg mailed 30 parcels of methamphetamine ranging from less than half a pound to roughly six pounds, from Arizona to Massachusetts through the U.S. Postal Service. Most of the methamphetamine originated in Phoenix, and was then distributed by Greenberg’s co-conspirators in the greater Boston metropolitan area. Western Union and U.S. Postal Service records established payments sent from co-conspirators in Massachusetts to Greenberg in Arizona. During the execution of a search warrant at Greenberg’s residence in Phoenix in August 2019, investigators seized an additional 486 grams of methamphetamine.
Several other individuals who participated in the conspiracy have pleaded guilty and are awaiting sentencing in Massachusetts.
