SOUTH BEND – Te’Ron Reid, 41 years old, of South Bend, Indiana, was sentenced by United States District Court Judge Damon R. Leichty on his plea of guilty to possessing with intent to distribute over 50 grams of methamphetamine, announced United States Attorney Clifford D. Johnson.

Reid was sentenced to 110 months in prison followed by 4 years of supervised release.

According to documents in the case, in September 2020, Reid was on home detention for a different sentence when law enforcement searched his residence.  In Reid’s home, officers found over 100 grams of methamphetamine, a drug ledger, and a loaded firearm.  

This case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives with the assistance of the South Bend Police Department and St. Joseph County Community Corrections.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Joel Gabrielse.

This case was prosecuted as part of the joint federal, state, and local Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) Program, the centerpiece of the Department of Justice’s violent crime reduction efforts.  PSN is an evidence-based program proven to be effective at reducing violent crime.  Through PSN, a broad spectrum of stakeholders work together to identify the most pressing violent crime problems in the community and develop comprehensive solutions to address them.  As part of this strategy, PSN focuses enforcement efforts on the most violent offenders and partners with locally based prevention and reentry programs for lasting reductions in crime.
