Fort Worth Man Sentenced To 300 Months In Federal Prison On Crack Cocaine Conviction
FORT WORTH, Texas - Jeremy Warner, a Fort Worth man who pleaded guilty in July to one count of possession of cocaine (crack cocaine) with the intent to distribute, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Reed C. O’Connor to 300 months in federal prison, announced U.S. Attorney John Parker of the Northern District of Texas.
Warner, 33, has been in custody since his arrest in May 2015 on a related federal criminal complaint.
According to the complaint filed in the case, when officers with the Fort Worth Police Department executed a search warrant at Warner’s residence on Illinois Avenue in Fort Worth in May 2015, Warner ran down the hallway and attempted to barricade himself in the master bathroom. After taking Warner into custody, officers began a systematic search of the residence. During the search, officers located a clear baggie containing approximately 95 grams of crack cocaine in plain view on the kitchen counter beside a digital scale. During a search of the master bathroom cabinets, officers located two large clear bags, one of which contained approximately 699 grams of crack cocaine and the second clear bag contained approximately 807 grams of powder cocaine. During the search of a hallway closet, officers located approximately $11,000.
Warner knowingly possessed the cocaine base with the intent to distribute it.
The Fort Worth Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Shawn Smith prosecuted.
