Second Madison County Man Sentenced for Distributing Methamphetamine and Fentanyl that Resulted in an Overdose Death

For Immediate Release

U.S. Attorney's Office, Eastern District of Kentucky

LEXINGTON, Ky. – A Richmond, Ky., man Kris Allen Anglin, 36, was sentenced on Friday, by Chief U.S. District Judge Danny Reeves, to 262 months in prison, for conspiracy to distribute 500 grams or more of methamphetamine and fentanyl; distribution of fentanyl, that resulted in death; and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.  He is the second defendant convicted for his role in the drug conspiracy and overdose death.  Gregory Scott Sizemore, 36, of McKee, Ky., was previously sentenced to 389 months.  

According to his plea agreement, from December 2020 until January 2021, Anglin conspired with Sizemore to distribute quantities of methamphetamine and fentanyl, in Madison County. On January 11, 2021, a victim fatally overdosed due to the ingestion of fentanyl distributed by Anglin and Sizemore. Specifically, law enforcement discovered that Sizemore had agreed to distribute a fentanyl-methamphetamine mixture to the victim, at his request. Electronic communications located on the victim’s phone confirmed that the substance being provided was a mixture of methamphetamine and fentanyl, that the victim had funds to buy it (by texting a photograph of the purchase money to Sizemore), that Anglin would deliver the drug on Sizemore’s behalf, and that the transaction had taken place.  Approximately four hours later, the victim was found deceased.

Within a few hours of the victim being found, law enforcement located Anglin, with three baggies containing fentanyl, cocaine, and/or methamphetamine, as well as the $20 bill used by the victim to purchase the methamphetamine-fentanyl mixture. Law enforcement also found U.S. currency, three digital scales, baggies, other drug trafficking paraphernalia, and three firearms. Anglin admitted he had multiple prior felony convictions, including convictions for Possession of a Controlled Substance First Degree, and was prohibited from possessing a firearm.  

Sizemore was the supplier for the methamphetamine-fentanyl mixture that caused the overdose death. After the victim was found deceased, law enforcement obtained a search warrant for a hotel room occupied by Sizemore. There, officers located 380 grams of methamphetamine in a duffel bag. At his arrest, Sizemore had an additional 368 grams of methamphetamine and 3 grams of fentanyl.

Under federal law, Anglin and Sizemore must serve 85 percent of their prison sentences.  Upon their release from prison, they will be under the supervision of the U.S. Probation Office for five years.

Carlton S. Shier, IV, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Kentucky; Erek Davodowich, Acting Special Agent in Charge, DEA, Louisville Field Division; Sheriff Mike Coyle, Madison County Sheriff’s Office, and Chief Rodney Richardson, Richmond Police Department, jointly announced the sentences.

The investigation was conducted by the DEA, the Madison County Sheriff’s Department, and the Richmond Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorney Todd Bradbury is prosecuting the case on behalf of the United States.
