Lee’s Summit Man Sentenced To 15 Years For $1 Million Meth Conspiracy

April 6, 2013

Tammy Dickinson, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that a Lee’s Summit, Mo., man was sentenced in federal court today for his role in a $1 million conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and for illegally possessing a firearm.

Clark L. Vanosdoll, 45, of Lee’s Summit, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Gary A. Fenner to 15 years in federal prison without parole. The court also ordered Vanosdoll to forfeit to the government $100,000, which represents the portion of the proceeds of the drug-trafficking conspiracy for which he was held responsible.

On May 18, 2012, Vanosdoll pleaded guilty to participating in a conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine from Jan. 1, 2006 to May 31, 2010 and to being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Vanosdoll admitted that he was in possession of a loaded Lorcin .22-caliber pistol when he was arrested on Dec. 20, 2011. Under federal law, it is illegal for anyone who has been convicted of a felony to be in possession of any firearm or ammunition. Vanosdoll has prior felony convictions for manufacturing a controlled substance and possessing a controlled substance.

Vanosdoll is the sixth defendant to be sentenced after pleading guilty to participating in the drug-trafficking conspiracy. Anthony J. Petty, 32, address unknown, was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison without parole. Jeffrey S. Lewis, 46, and Roxie A. Boling, 30, both of Kansas City, Mo., were each sentenced to 10 years in federal prison without parole. Michael S. McCollum, 62, of Kansas City, Mo., was sentenced to seven years in federal prison without parole. Mitzi S. Damron, 39, of Kansas City, Mo., was sentenced to three years and one month in federal prison without parole.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Rudolph R. Rhodes, IV. It was investigated by the Lee’s Summit, Mo., Police Department, the Kansas City, Mo., Police Department, the Independence, Mo., Police Department, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the U.S. Secret Service, and the North Kansas City, Mo., Police Department, with assistance from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Office of Homeland Security Investigations.
