Collin County Man Charged with Distributing Fentanyl in the Eastern District of Texas

PLANO – A Plano has been charged with drug trafficking violations in the Eastern District of Texas, announced U.S. Attorney Brit Featherston today.

Eric William Mather, also known as “Truth”, 36, was named in a fourth superseding indictment returned by a federal grand jury on Nov. 9, 2022 in the Eastern District of Texas.  The indictment charges Mather with multiple federal violations including conspiracy to distribute fentanyl and conspiracy to launder money.  Mather made his initial appearance on Jan. 12, 2023, before U.S. Magistrate Judge Christine Nowak.

According to the indictment, in September of 2022, the North Texas North Texas OCDETF Strike Force 2 (SF2), with the assistance of the DEA Dallas Tactical Diversion Squad (TDS), identified Mather as a fentanyl source of supply selling raw powdered fentanyl, and counterfeit pharmaceutical pills laced with fentanyl.  During his arrest, a search warrant was executed on his residence, resulting in the seizure of over 2 kilograms of raw powdered fentanyl, over a kilogram of fentanyl laced pills, a pill press, 30 firearms, and luxury vehicles. Mather is ultimately alleged to be responsible for multiple overdoses in the North Texas region.

If convicted, Mather faces up to life in federal prison.  A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

This prosecution is part of an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF) investigation. OCDETF identifies, disrupts, and dismantles the highest-level drug traffickers, money launderers, gangs, and transnational criminal organizations that threaten the United States by using a prosecutor-led, intelligence-driven, multi-agency approach that leverages the strengths of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies against criminal networks.

This case is being investigated by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service; Drug Enforcement Administration; U.S. Marshals Service; IRS-Criminal Investigations; Dallas Police Department; and the Collin County Sheriff’s Office.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Heather Rattan.

An indictment is not evidence of guilt.  All defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
