Justin Miner

MADISON, Wis. – A Fitchburg man is facing eight years in federal prison for possessing methamphetamine, the Department of Justice announced Thursday.

Justin Miner, 37, was arrested last year after police set up an arranged purchase of meth.

Police found meth, heroin, crack cocaine, and ecstasy pills on Miner at the time of the arrest.

More drugs, thousands of dollars, a firearm, and ammunition were found at Miner’s residence.

After the arrest, Miner reportedly admitted to selling drugs and told police that he was a member of a Chicago gang.

He pleaded guilty to possessing methamphetamine with intent to distribute in August.
