EUGENE, Ore. – Two armed drug traffickers were sentenced to federal prison time this week after they were caught with meth, cash, and a stolen gun in Linn County on March 16, 2016, The U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

Court documents show that 39-year-old Eric Agee and 30-year-old Shawna Smith were arrested after they brought nearly a quarter pound of meth to a Linn County truck stop and another quarter pound to a hotel room in Marion County.

During the traffic stop, police found a stolen .22 caliber pistol under the front seat. Investigators said they found more than half a pound of meth and more than $2,100 cash in the duo’s hotel room.

Agee and Smith are both convicted felons with a history of drug-related crimes. Agee was on post-prison supervision and Smith was on probation.

Agee was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison for possession of meth and a stolen firearm.

Smith was sentenced to 10 years in prison for aiding and abetting Agee in distributing the meth.

Officials said that both Smith and Agee pleaded guilty to the crimes, which was part of their sentencing agreements.

The Drug Enforcement Administration, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, Oregon State Police, Benton and Linn County Sheriff’s Offices, and City of Albany Police Departments were part of the investigation.
