Senior U.S. District Judge Edward J. Lodge also ordered Stricharskiy to pay a $2,500 fine and serve five years of supervised release following his prison sentence. Stricharskiy pleaded guilty to the charge on April 18, 2019.
According to court records, Stricharskiy sold methamphetamine to an undercover law enforcement officer on three occasions. Also, as part of his crimes, Stricharskiy agreed to make a hidden compartment in a vehicle so others could secretly transport drugs. Stricharskiy was the owner and operator of an auto body shop located at 2701 West Idaho Street, Boise, Idaho. As part of his plea agreement, he agreed that this property facilitated his drug trafficking and was subject to forfeiture. The sale of the property netted $100,000 to be forfeited to the United States as equivalent to unrecovered drug proceeds.
This case was investigated by Federal Bureau of Investigation and Boise Police Department.
This indictment is the result of a joint investigation by the Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF).
