WALTON COUNTY, FLA :A DeFuniak Springs husband and wife and their son have been sentenced by a federal judge for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine in Walton County.


The sentences were announced by Jason R. Coody, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Florida Monday afternoon.



Philip Beck, 48, was sentenced to more than 21 years in prison. His wife, Florence Beck, 47, was sentenced to 10 years in prison. The couple’s son, Joshua Martinez, 28, was sentenced to 21 and a half years in prison.



All were sentenced to supervised release once they have completed their sentences.



In March 2023, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and Walton County VICE/Narcotics Unit intercepted two packages mailed from California to addresses in Niceville and Mossy Head. Walton County Sheriff’s Office K-9 “Jax” alerted to the packages which revealed each contained approximately five pounds of methamphetamine. A follow-up investigation revealed Philip Beck and Joshua Martinez were the intended recipients of the drug parcels and Florence Beck was helping the father/son duo.



Philip Beck was also stopped by the DeFuniak Springs Police Department in January 2023 while driving his Dodge Ram truck. Approximately 28 grams of methamphetamine were discovered inside the vehicle. This charge was included in the federal sentencing.



This case resulted from a joint investigation by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, Walton County Sheriff’s Office VICE/Narcotics Unit, the DeFuniak Springs Police Department, and the Drug Enforcement Administration.  The United States Attorney’s Office prosecuted the case.
