Lynn Man Sentenced to 15 Years in Prison for Possessing Three Pounds of Methamphetamine and Two Firearms
BOSTON – A Lynn man was sentenced today in federal court in Boston for conspiring to distribute methamphetamine and possessing firearms.
David Oth, a/k/a “Baby Bouncer,” a/k/a “BB,” 32, was sentenced today by U.S. Senior District Court Judge Mark L. Wolf to 15 years in prison and six years of supervised release. On Aug. 5, 2021, Oth pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine and possession of firearms in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.
Oth was a member of the Tiny Rascals Gangsters, a violent street gang with a presence in Lynn, Malden, Salem and Lowell. Oth and other gang members conspired for over a year to distribute methamphetamine and other drugs by transporting them to Maine, where they would yield a higher resale value. A search of Oth’s residence in February 2021 resulted in the seizure of approximately three pounds of 100% pure methamphetamine and two firearms.
