Okeechobee Man Pleads Guilty To Possessing Over Half-kilogram Of Cocaine And Six Ounces Of Fentanyl Found In Car
(FORT MYERS, Fla..) - Kenneth (58, Okeechobee) has pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance. He faces a minimum of five and up to 40 years in federal prison. A sentencing date has not yet been set.
According to court documents, a City of Arcadia police officer pulled McQueen over for a minor traffic violation. McQueen volunteered that he was in possession of marijuana, but claimed he had just cleaned the car, so no other contraband would be found. A search of the vehicle revealed over a half-kilogram of cocaine and six ounces of fentanyl in multiple locations throughout the passenger compartment.
This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration Fort Myers Resident Office and the Arcadia Police Department. It is being prosecuted by United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida.
