Solano County Man Indicted For Possession Of Methamphetamine With Intent To Distribute, And Unlawful Possession Of A Firearm

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — On September 21, 2017, a federal grand jury returned a two-count indictment against Wilfred Wallace Bryant, 55, of Vacaville, charging him with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute and being a felon in possession of a firearm, United States Attorney Phillip A. Talbert announced.  Bryant was taken into custody today and the indictment was unsealed.

 

According to court documents, on or about July 14, 2017, Bryant was found to be in possession of a mixture and substance containing methamphetamine and a Hi-Point CF-380 handgun. Bryant is prohibited from possessing a firearm.

 

This case was the product of an investigation by the Vacaville Police Department and the FBI Solano County Violent Crimes Task Force. Assistant United States Attorney Owen Roth is prosecuting the case.

 

If convicted, Bryant faces a maximum statutory penalty of twenty years in prison and a $1,00,000 fine for possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute.  He also faces a maximum statutory penalty of ten years in prison and a $250,000 fine for unlawful possession of a firearm. Any sentence, however, would be determined at the discretion of the court after consideration of any applicable statutory factors and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, which take into account a number of variables. The charges are only allegations; the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
