Meth Cook Sentenced In Federal Court

April 7, 2014

MOBILE, Ala. –  Miles Courtney Alexander, 31, of Grand Bay, Alabama, was sentenced today in federal court to 96 months in federal prison for his role in a methamphetamine manufacturing conspiracy.  Alexander was arrested in September of 2012 as the result of a DHR welfare investigation at a residence on Judge Ervin Drive in Grand Bay. Court documents reflect that Alexander, along with his co-defendants Clarence Lee and Cecily Colvin, were arrested in a vehicle which arrived at the residence after DHR workers contacted the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office about a possible meth lab at the premises there.  In testimony at the sentencing hearing today, Investigator Andrew O’Shea testified that sheriff’s deputies found elements of a meth lab in the trunk of the vehicle, driven by Alexander, along with propane tanks and gasoline cans.  Investigator O’Shea also testified that one of Colvin’s minor children was in the vehicle with the defendants when the meth lab was discovered in the trunk, and that a firearm was discovered by the investigators on the scene under the front seat of the vehicle.

United States District Court Judge William H. Steele imposed the sentence after hearing the testimony.  The judge also ordered that Alexander receive drug treatment while in prison, and when Alexander is released from custody, he will serve three years of supervised release.  The judge ordered that Alexander also under testing and treatment for drug abuse while under supervision.  The judge ordered that Alexander pay $100 in special mandatory assessments.

The case was investigated by the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office.  It was prosecuted in the United States Attorney=s Office by Assistant United States Attorney Gloria Bedwell.
