Federal Jury Convicts Talladega County Employee on Drug Charges

 Birmingham, Ala. – A federal jury today convicted a Talladega man on drug charges, announced United States Attorney Prim F. Escalona and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Special Agent in Charge Mikey French.

The jury returned its guilty verdict against Anthony Lamon Frazier, 38, after 2 days of testimony before U.S. District Judge Corey L. Maze. 

“Frazier’s conviction sends the message to those dealing drugs – you will get caught, and you will be held responsible for pushing this poison in our communities,” USA Escalona said.  “I want to commend the Talladega County Drug Task Force and the prosecution team for their hard work on this case.  I also want to thank the jurors for their time and service.” 

“The partnerships with the public safety departments and the U.S. Attorney’s office were crucial in reducing the potential for violent crime in this case,” SAC French said. 

Evidence at trial proved that Frazier agreed to deliver almost two pounds of methamphetamine to an individual, and ultimately did deliver that methamphetamine. Frazier used his Talladega County work truck to distribute the narcotics, and evidence at trial showed that a narcotics canine indicated on Frazier’s work truck numerous times for the presence of drugs.

The maximum penalty for possession with the intent to distribute more than 50 grams of methamphetamine is life in prison.

ATF investigated the case, along with the Talladega County Drug Task Force.  Assistant U.S. Attorneys Blake Milner and Allison Garnett prosecuted the case.
