Robertsdale Meth Cook Sentenced In Federal Court

MOBILE, Ala. – Tony Rodger Foley, 33, of Robertsdale, was sentenced in federal court on Wednesday, April 9, to a seven-year prison term for his involvement in conspiracy to manufacture and attempt to manufacture methamphetamine.  Foley pled guilty to the two charges, conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine and an attempt to manufacture methamphetamine, in 2012.  Court documents reflect that Foley was arrested after attempting to flee from Mobile County sheriff’s deputies in a black Hummer when they attempted to arrest him in connection with a sting operation involving the controlled delivery of pseudoephedrine.  After making bond on those state charges, he continued to purchase pseudoephedrine and was arrested within months at a trailer near Robertsdale, caught in the act of manufacturing methamphetamine.  The federal drug charges were brought against him shortly thereafter, and he has been in custody since that time.

The judge ordered that the sentences in each case would run concurrently.  He also ordered that Foley undergo drug treatment while in custody, and as a condition of his supervised release term of five years, which will follow his incarceration.  The judge did not impose a fine but ordered that Foley pay $200 in special assessments

The case was investigated by the Baldwin County Drug Task Force, the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office, the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office and the Loxley Police Department.  It was prosecuted in the United States Attorney=s Office by Assistant United States Attorney Gloria Bedwell.
