COVINGTON, Ky. – Gregory Sydnor, 30, of Falmouth, Kentucky, was sentenced today to 360 months in federal prison, by United States District Judge David L. Bunning, for conspiring to distribute methamphetamine. Sydnor was also sentenced to 10 years of supervised release, to be served after completion of his prison term.
Sydnor was convicted of leading a conspiracy that was responsible for distributing more than 1.5 kilograms of crystal methamphetamine, in 2017.

Sydnor, and other members of the conspiracy, also possessed firearms while selling the drugs. Agents seized ten firearms and a large amount of ammunition during the course of the investigation. Sydnor had five prior felony convictions.
Sydnor was indicted in November 2017 along with other members of his conspiracy. All entered guilty pleas. William Todd Ramsey was sentenced to 120 months in federal prison and Sterling T. Cole was sentenced to 157 months in prison, in November 2018. Nathaniel Hughes was sentenced to 37 months in prison in September 2018. Under federal law, each Defendant must serve at least 85 percent of their prison sentence.

Plancon, Special Agent in Charge, Drug Enforcement Administration; Richard Sanders, Commissioner of the Kentucky State Police; and Charles Peoples, Pendleton County Sheriff, jointly made the announcement. The investigation was conducted by the DEA, the Kentucky State Police, and the Pendleton County Sheriff’s Department.
