    Aryan Circle Member Sentenced to 20 Years in Federal Prison For the Distribution of Methamphetamine

    A Fort Worth member of a white supremacist gang is headed to prison for distribution of methamphetamine, the Department of Justice says.

    Scott Edward "Skinny Pup" Grigsby, 44, of White Settlement, was sentenced last week by U.S. District Judge John McBryde to 240 months in federal prison for his role in a methamphetamine distribution conspiracy.

    According to documents filed in the case, Grigsby received methamphetamine on multiple occasions in 2015 and 2016 from various sources of supply in the Fort Worth area. Grigsby then distributed the methamphetamine to others, including officers working in an undercover capacity.

    Grigsby was arrested in April and has been in federal custody ever since. U.S. Attorney John Parker said Grigsby pleaded guilty in May to one count of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute a controlled substance.

    The DOJ said Grigsby is a member of the Aryan Circle, a white supremacist prison and street gang the Anti-Defamation League said is the second-largest in the state of Texas and one of the largest in the U.S.

    The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and Department of Public Safety investigated the case.
