Dunn County man will spend 12 years behind bars for trafficking meth

MADISON (WKBT) — A 42-year-old man from Downing will spend the next 12 years in prison for trafficking meth to Wisconsin.

A U.S. District Judge sentenced Adam Beliveau Wednesday to 12 1/2 years. Beliveau was convicted for intent to distribute 500 grams or more of methamphetamine.

According to a government investigation, Beliveau regularly traveled to California in 2020 to mail illegal drugs back to Wisconsin. Beliveau then sold those drugs to dealers in the area. Law enforcement discovered that a package Beliveau sent to himself in Sept. 2020 contained four pounds of meth. Two months later officers arrested him at a convenience store in Woodville, Wisconsin. A search on site turned up over 2 1/2 pounds of meth and $30,000 cash. Another search at his residence in Downing and a storage unit in Baldwin turned up large amounts of heroin, fentanyl, THC, multiple guns and hundreds of rounds of ammunition.

Beliveau pleaded guilty to charges on April 19. At the time of his offenses, Beliveau was on state supervision for another drug trafficking offense in Minnesota.
