GREAT FALLS—A Wolf Point woman has been sentenced to more than three years in prison for trafficking methamphetamine into Montana and on the Fork Peck Indian Reservation.

Taurean Grandchamp, 31 will also serve four years supervised release, according to U.S Attorney Kurt Alme.

Grandchamp was convicted of trafficking methamphetamine on the Fort Peck Reservation and previously pleaded guilty on Aug. 23 to possession with intent to distribute.

In October 2017 and January 2018, the Montana Highway Patrol made two traffic stops on the reservation near Wolf Point, involving vehicles with Arizona license plates, according to Alme.

The driver and passenger were the same in both stops.

Information from drugs seized in those stops led law enforcement to Grandchamp, who admitted to distributing meth on the reservation.

According to law enforcement, in 2017, Grandchamp said she was provided with one pound of meth for distribution.

Other individuals also described Grandchamp to police as selling meth with a driver and another passenger of the vehicles that were stopped by the MHP.

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods, a program bringing together federal, state, local and tribal law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make neighborhoods safer for everyone.
