PHOENIX — A Phoenix man has been sentenced to 50 months in prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy and distribution of methamphetamine.

Brandon (Brandi) Greenberg, 30, also faces 48 months of supervised release in the sentence handed down by U.S. District Judge John J. Tuchi last week.

Greenberg allegedly mailed 30 parcels of meth ranging from less than half a pound to roughly six pounds from Arizona to Massachusetts through the U.S. Postal Service in a nine-month period in 2018 and 2019, according to a press release.

Most of the meth originated in Phoenix, authorities said.

The man’s co-conspirators in the greater Boston area would then distribute the meth, authorities said, with payments being sent from the co-conspirators back to Greenberg in Arizona.

A search warrant of the Greenberg’s home in August 2019 resulted in 486 grams of meth being found, authorities said.

In addition to Greenberg, seven other people part of the conspiracy also plead guilty and await sentencing in Massachusetts.

The case was part of an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces operation, which works to identify, disrupt and dismantle high-level criminal organizations.

The Peoria Police Department aided in the investigation, along with various agencies in Massachusetts.
