Armed St. Louis dealer pleads guilty to several drug charges

ST. LOUIS, MO – United States District Judge E. Richard Webber accepted a plea from Alonzo Williams. The 26-year-old St. Louis, Missouri resident pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute hydrocodone, one count of possession with intent to distribute oxycodone, and two counts of possession with intent to distribute marijuana.

According to a plea agreement, on September 18, 2019, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and St. Louis County Police worked with a confidential source (CS) to buy narcotics from Williams. The CS and Williams arranged to meet at the Dellwood Market and Willams’ home. The CS exchanged $100 with Williams for 15.25 grams of marijuana. Williams, who possessed an assault rifle, as well as another armed individual, were in the home during the deal.

On October 2, 2019, Williams sold the CS 2.95 grams of marijuana and .20 grams of oxycodone. Guns were again present inside the home.

On October 8, 2019, another individual directed the CS to meet at Williams’ home. The CS contacted Williams, who was waiting in a vehicle, and bought .20 grams of hydrocodone pills for $20.

Each of the charges to which Williams pleaded guilty carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a fine of $250,000.

Judge Webber has set sentencing for February 8, 2021.            

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and St. Louis County Police Department investigated this case. Assistant United States Attorney Paul D’Agrosa is handling the case.
