Fridley man sentenced to 18 years in prison for drug offenses

MINNEAPOLIS — A 48-year-old Fridley was sentenced to 18 years in prison for selling methamphetamine and illegal possession of firearms.

John Juneau was convicted of one count of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, one count of possession of methamphetamine and one count of possession of firearms in connection with a felony drug traffic.

Because Juneau has multiple prior felony convictions, he was also charged with one count of felony firearm possession.

Law enforcement executed a search warrant on February 1, 2019, where they encountered Juneau and two others. During the search, they found three plastic bags containing methamphetamine. Tests revealed Juneau’s DNA present on the bags.

Police executed another search warrant in July 2019 at a residence in Coon Rapids. Officers reported seeing Juneau attempting to leave the residence through a window.

Officers found methamphetamine, two pistols, a safe containing $6,000 in cash, scales and numerous empty plastic bags inside the residence.

After his prison sentence, Juneau will serve five years of probation.
