Gibson County man sentenced to 7 years on meth charges

JACKSON, Tenn. — A Gibson County man has been sentenced to serve seven years on charges of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s office.

According to a news release, agents with the 28th Judicial District Drug Task Force searched a Milan home on May 20, 2019, and found about five grams of methamphetamine.

The release says the occupants of the home called their supplier, identified as Michael Taylor, who brought about a half-ounce of methamphetamine to the home.

Taylor, 37, arrived at the home and walked to the front door when agents ordered him to the ground, according to the release.

The release says Taylor refused to comply with agents’ commands and had to be physically restrained. The release says agents found 15 grams of methamphetamine, 69 grams of a cutting agents, and $2,244 in cash.

Agents also found a can in Taylor’s car containing nine grams of methamphetamine in three different bags, as well as Xanax pills, a bag containing baggies used for packaging drugs, scalls with meth residue, and another 57 grams of meth, according to the release.

The release says Taylor admitted to agents that the meth was his.

In addition to his seven year sentence, Taylor will serve an additional three years of supervised release.
