Wausau man sentenced amid meth distribution conspiracy

MADISON, Wis. (WAOW) — A Wausau man will spend the next decade of his life behind bars.

Nathaniel Drow, 32, was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison Thursday by Chief U.S. District Judge James D. Peterson for conspiring to distribute 50 grams or more of pure methamphetamine, according to a press release from the U.S. Department of Justice.

The release says Drow and co-defendant Antron Allen were seen by police sitting in a parked vehicle in a Wausau parking lot. Both had active arrest warrants at the time, per the release.

As police approached the vehicle, Drow “jumped out of the passenger seat and dropped a
small baggie containing methamphetamine,” per the release. Police then found approximately 220 grams of meth in the front passenger door, it adds.

An investigation by Wausau police and the FBI determined Drow had been selling meth in Wausau for the previous two weeks, the release says.

According to the press release, Drow was also on probation for a felony drug conviction at the time of his arrest.

Allen’s case is set to begin Dec. 10 in Madison’s U.S District Court.
