Randolph Man Sentenced for Drug Trafficking
BOSTON – A Randolph man, who was involved in drug trafficking with his father and others, was sentenced yesterday in federal court in Boston.
Larry Lovell Bailey, 42, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Richard G. Stearns to 46 months in prison and three years of supervised release. Judge Stearns also ordered Bailey to forfeit $300,000, a vehicle and other property. In March 2016, Bailey pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine base (crack cocaine) with intent to distribute. Bailey, along with 53 members and associates of the Columbia Point Dogs street gang, was arrested in June 2015 on various racketeering, drug trafficking, and firearms charges.
Bailey was involved with his father, Larry Bailey, in the distribution of cocaine base and cocaine. The two used two Boston businesses – Finest Cuts barbershop on Blue Hill Avenue and Bailey’s Laundromat on Harrison Avenue – to distribute cocaine and cocaine base. During the investigation, law enforcement determined that Bailey was cooking cocaine base at his residence in Randolph. A search warrant executed at Bailey’s residence resulted in the seizure of cocaine base, powder cocaine, drug trafficking paraphernalia, a loaded .40 caliber handgun and over $300,000 in cash.
