A major drug bust eight months ago has lead to a long prison sentence for one of the men involved. Jeremy Christopher Carter, 28, or Norfolk, Va. was recently sentenced to 17 1/2 months in prison for the distribution of cocaine, a cocaine base and on a related firearm charge. Carter was part of a group of dealers and traffickers using an apartment on Nevada Avenue.
When police entered the apartment as part of a search warrant they found 174 grams of powder cocaine, 99 grams of crack, two assault rifles, a handgun and over $34,000 in cash.
The drug bust was organized and executed by both the Norfolk Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The prosecutor on the case was Assistant United States Attorney Darryl Mitchell. The case was heard by United States District Judge Raymond A. Jackson.
