Crack Cocaine Dealer Sentenced

Michael J. Moore, United States Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia, announced that Javaris Bloodser, age 33, of Forsyth, Georgia, was sentenced on May 8, 2014, to 13 years in federal prison.  Mr. Bloodser had previously entered a guilty plea to possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine. As part of the written plea agreement, Mr. Bloodser stipulated that on June 5, 2013, he was a passenger in a car which was stopped for a traffic violation in Forsyth. After Mr. Bloodser exited the vehicle, officers found a small quantity of marijuana in his pocket. Mr. Bloodser was detained and placed in the rear of a patrol vehicle. After he had been placed in the car, officers noticed that Mr. Bloodser appeared to be making suspicious movements inside the vehicle. One of the officers approached Mr. Bloodser and found him attempting to hide 29 grams of crack between the seats.

The investigation was conducted by agents from the GBI and officers from the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.  Assistant United States Attorney Charles L. Calhoun appeared on behalf of the Government.

“This defendant, an admitted crack cocaine distributor, is off our streets because of the great cooperation between local, state and federal law enforcement.  The truth that Mr. Bloodser now realizes - and what any other drug dealers should learn - is that if you deal drugs in Middle Georgia, you are going to end up in jail,” said U.S. Attorney Michael Moore.

Inquiries regarding the case should be directed to Pamela Lightsey, United States Attorney's Office at (478) 621-2603.
