Largo Armed Drug Dealer Sentenced To 15 Years In Prison

TAMPA, Fla. - U.S. District Judge Susan C. Bucklew today sentenced Antwon (39, Largo) to 15 years in federal prison for being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition. The Court also ordered Scott to forfeit the firearm and ammunition involved in the offense.  He pleaded guilty on October 31, 2014.
According to court documents, on April 11, 2014, officers from the Largo Police Department conducted a traffic stop of Scott for driving with a suspended license. Inside the car, Scott had a distribution amount of marijuana. During a subsequent search of Scott’s residence, officers found a firearm, ammunition, and narcotics. Scott has an extensive criminal history, including convictions for fleeing and eluding law enforcement, sales of narcotics, and aggravated assault.  As a previously convicted felon, he was prohibited from possessing a firearm or ammunition under federal law.
This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration, Tampa District Office, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, and the Largo Police Department. It was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida.
