Madison (WQOW) – An Eau Claire man is going to federal prison for driving to Colorado and bringing meth back to Eau Claire.
Tyler Stratton-Anstice, 22, was sentenced on Wednesday to 10 years in federal prison for planning to distribute 500 grams or more of meth. He pleaded guilty to the charge on July 26.
According to the Department of Justice, in December 2017, Stratton-Anstice and two others, Sara Sullivan and Christopher Anstice, drove from Eau Claire to Colorado to purchase methamphetamine. The three of them met with a meth supplier in Colorado Springs and purchased three pounds of the drug. The following day, Sullivan and Stratton-Anstice drove the methamphetamine to Eau Claire. Anstice and Stratton-Anstice are father and son.
Federal Judge William Conley said Stratton-Anstice has a history of trafficking firearms and chose to play a role in a large-scale interstate methamphetamine trafficking conspiracy.
