Meth Trafficker Who Wore D.A.R.E. T-Shirt Will Serve Minimum Of 15 Years In Prison

A methamphetamine trafficker who was wearing a D.A.R.E. t-shirt when arrested by Michigan narcotics agents was sentenced yesterday to a minimum of 15 years in prison.

Jeffrey Elton Schmiege, 48, was arrested last year following a raid at his residence that yielded "large quantities of crystal meth, prescription medication, marijuana, a firearm, and ammunition," according to the local narcotics task force.

Schmiege, seen above, recently pleaded guilty to multiple felony narcotics counts. Investigators identified him as the leader of a ring that brought meth from Minnesota into Gogebic County in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

Schmiege has a lengthy rap sheet that includes nine felony and six misdemeanor arrests.
