WACO (January 26, 2012)—Two Waco brothers were sent to federal prison Wednesday after both earlier pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.
Alex Felan was sentenced to six years in prison to be followed by three years supervised release, and was ordered to pay a $1,000 fine and $100 in special assessment to the court.
Edward Felan was sentenced to eight years and four months behind bars on one count and five years on a second count, both to run concurrently and to be followed by three years supervised release, and was ordered to pay a $1,500 fine and $300 in special assessment to the court.
Prosecutors say the Felans, beginning around April 15, 2011, became the targets of agents of the Waco Police Department’s Drug Enforcement Unit.
Agents had been investigating a residence on Summer Ave., and during that investigation identified Edward Felan as a suspect in the local drug trade.
An informant told officers he had seen cocaine, methamphetamine, marijuana and weapons inside the residence where Edward Felan lived.
A Waco PD SWAT team entered the residence, arrested Alex and Edward Felan and recovered a large amount of currency and drugs.
Officers also recovered a 9mm pistol, an AR-15 assault rifle and several rounds of ammunition.
