Randy D. Mack, a 36-year-old Wisconsin resident, was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison on Monday by Senior United States District Judge William C. Griesbach, according to a recent release. Mack was convicted of attempting to possess fentanyl with the intent to distribute.

In December 2022, law enforcement agents intercepted a UPS package intended for Mack, which contained approximately 56,000 fake Percocet pills laced with fentanyl. An investigation revealed that Mack had distributed nearly one million fentanyl pills across Arizona, Michigan, and Wisconsin. He allegedly paid individuals to conceal the pills in luggage and transported them via commercial flights.

In a recent interview, Mack boasted, “There’s not a single pill in the (Fox) Valley that doesn’t have my name on it.” The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) notes that counterfeit pills are frequently manufactured by Mexican drug cartels and smuggled into the United States. In 2023 alone, the DEA seized over 80 million fake pills containing traces of fentanyl.

The DEA and the Lake Winnebago Area Metropolitan Enforcement Group’s drug unit led the investigation into the case.
