Brother, sister sentenced for trafficking meth from Arizona to Wisconsin

MADISON, Wis. — A brother and sister were sentenced earlier this week for trafficking methamphetamine from Arizona to Wisconsin, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Wisconsin said.

Douglas Mack, 45, of Phoenix, was sentenced Wednesday to 11 years in prison after pleading guilty in March to a charge of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. His sister, Emily Mack, 36, of Madison, was sentenced Thursday to five years in prison after pleading guilty in April to possessing more than 50 grams of meth for distribution.

The siblings were charged in January 2021 with conspiring with two other people — Tonia Greenwood and D’Angelo Lashore — to distribute meth and possess it with intent to distribute it, the justice department said in a news release. Over a period from November 2018 to January 2021, Mack mailed more than 4.5 kilograms of meth from Arizona to his sister and Lashore in Madison and Greenwood in Sauk County. Emily Mack kept some of the drugs for herself and distributed others in the Madison area.

Greenwood was sentenced last month to two and a half years in prison after pleading guilty to multiple charges. At the time, justice department officials said she had packages of meth sent to friends and neighbors who didn’t know the drugs were inside.
