A meth dealer involved in an incident in Fayette County last fall has been sentenced to prison.
According to the U.S. Department of Justice, 33-year old Todd Groom of Boscobel, Wisconsin, was sentenced on Monday to more than seven years in federal prison.
Groom pleaded guilty in May to possession of firearms by a prohibited person.
On September 24th, 2020, Fayette County deputies executed a search warrant for stolen property at a home in Clermont. After discovering that there were drugs in the house, the deputies obtained and executed a second search warrant for drugs and drug-related items. They found two firearms in a backpack with other items belonging to Groom.
Groom had previously been convicted to four felony offenses and was a meth user. He later admitted to a deputy that a couple weeks before the search, he had bought one and a half pounds of meth for redistribution and that one of the people he dealt with was involved with a drug cartel.
Groom is being held in U.S. Marshal’s custody until he can be transported to a federal prison.
