  • A St. Robert man has been sentenced to seven years in federal prison without parole for his role in a conspiracy to distribute heroin in Pulaski County, a federal judge decided last week.
    Robert E. Peetz, 27, was given the sentence by U.S. Chief District Judge Greg Kays Tuesday, April 15.
    On Oct. 9, 2012, Peetz pleaded guilty to participating in a conspiracy to distribute heroin.
    According to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Peetz admitted that he began selling heroin in the fall of 2010. Federal agents used a confidential source to make three undercover purchases of heroin from Peetz in August 2011.
    Peetz estimated that he had sold between 5 and 6 ounces of heroin (which is in excess of 100 grams).
    Assistant U.S. Attorney Gary Milligan prosecuted this case. The Drug Enforcement Administration, Missouri State Highway Patrol, Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department, St. Robert Police Department, Waynesville Police Department and the Lake Area Narcotics Enforcement Group investigated this case.
