Drug Possession and Sale Leads to 20 Year Sentence

In Texas, a young man was sentenced last week to 20 years behind bars for possession of drugs and firearms. According to the police report, 30-year-old G.A. was found to be in possession of 15 grams of cocaine as well as two pistols. Both were found on his person last year by state troopers. After interviewing their suspect, the officers learned that he also distributed the cocaine. He reportedly purchased 2 to 4 kilograms of the substance every week from an anonymous source in Houston.

When police detained the suspect, he was found to have $50,000 in cash on him as well. Police quickly obtained a search warrant and discovered additional illegal substances and materials at his residence including: cocaine powder, marijuana, cash, crack cocaine, firearms, and body armor. He was charged with multiple counts of committing a drug crime as well as being in possession of firearms. A Texas judge sentenced G.A. to 20 years in a federal prison for being guilty of possession of a gun and dealing cocaine. He, along with four other people, was investigated by the Smith County Sheriff's Office and the DEA, as well as a U.S. attorney. Are you facing drug crime charges in Plano?
