Marin County Major Crimes Task Force case leads to 10 year prison sentence
On January 28 Timothy Melchior pleaded guilty to the charge of possession of meth with the intent to distribute it.
The 33-year-old San Rafael resident was recently sentenced to 10 years in prison for the charge.
It began with an investigation in September of 2018 in which the suspect was identified as a drug supplier.
A search warranted executed in October of 2018 produced “almost 200 grams of pure methamphetamine, along with distribution amounts of heroin and marijuana; multiple cell phones and laptops; a digital scale and drug packaging materials; approximately $12,000 in cash; and bank records showing that, despite being unemployed, the defendant possessed approximately $85,000 in his bank account. The currency was later seized as part of the investigation.”
Melchior has nine prior convictions in Marin County, related to narcotics, burglary, evading and car theft. He had been released on probation earlier in 2018.
Mekchior was also sentenced to “a five-year period of supervised release.”
His next day in court is on January 26, 2021 “to set a date to surrender to the Bureau of Prisons.”
