St. Petersburg Drug Trafficker Sentenced To Prison
TAMPA, Fla. - U.S. District Judge Steven D. Merryday sentenced Altwan L. (36, St. Petersburg) to 17 years and six months in federal prison for conspiring with others to possess with intent to distribute five kilograms or more of cocaine. He pleaded guilty on December 9, 2014.
According to court documents, Holloway and others were involved in a year-long drug conspiracy that was responsible for the distribution of at least 149 kilograms of cocaine in the St. Petersburg, Florida area. Additionally, a search of an identified “stash house” being used by this drug trafficking organization resulted in the discovery of digital scales, mixing agents, containers with cocaine residue, and a “kilo” press. Agents also located 850 grams of cocaine and $71,930 inside the stash house.
This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration. It was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida.
