MISSOULA — A Polson woman who admitted distributing methamphetamine in 2019 has been sentenced to one year and one day in prison and five years of supervised release, U.S. Attorney Kurt Alme said.

Brook Nicole Deneault, 27, pleaded guilty in November to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute meth.

The prosecution said evidence would show that in June 2019, the Polson Police Department made a traffic stop of a vehicle Deneault was driving. In a search of the vehicle, officers found meth, currency, a drug ledger and paraphernalia.

A few days later, the Ronan Police Department made a traffic stop of a vehicle in which Deneault was a passenger. In a search of that vehicle, officers found meth in Deneault’s personal possessions.

Deneault admitted that the drugs found in the vehicle were hers and that she distributed meth between April and July of 2019.
