He told Brisson that he could not pay him back that day and left sheep-shearing for the day. When Brisson returned, he called the Madden brothers, and they went to the barnyard and used some of their marijuana to help Sheepway get comfortable, then sold him an eighth of an ounce of speed for $300. He then gave Sheepway an address and a set of directions finding him a dealer named Charles Wolf, which he did. Sheepway drove to Wolf's house, where he purchased five rocks of crack from Wolf. Both Sheepway and Wolf went to the house of Robert Minik, who sold them an ounce of crack for $990. Sheepway then drove to James Brown’s house, where both Sheepway and Robert Minik sold him an eighth of an ounce of crack for $300. Sheepway was paid over $2650 in the all in about thirty minutes.
Sheepway, who was on probation for a previous drug conviction, was on a mission to get back within the drug-rehab program. In April 1997, Detective Christopher Mack, began an undercover operation to sell heroin to Michael Speir, who was promised a free supply of heroin by his brother Steve. Undercover officers bought heroin from Speir on 11 separate occasions, with Steve Speir repeatedly saying that his brother would be back (that is, obtain heroin) as soon as he was able to do so (that is, sell it again).
In exchange for his cooperation, Steve Speir pleaded guilty to possession of heroin and was sentenced to three years in prison. The only drug charge against Michael Speir was a single count of possession of heroin, and he was sentenced to two years in prison.
They agreed to meet two days later, on April 12, 1997, when Steve Speir returned to buy more heroin. An undercover officer gave him $420, and he left. At the crack house, while waiting for Steve, Speir sold the undercover officer nine vials of PCP for $25 each. d2c66b5586
