Fernandina Beach Man Pleads Guilty To Drug And Firearm Offenses

Jacksonville, Florida – Acting United States Attorney W. Stephen Muldrow announces that Frank Malik Drummond, Jr. (21, Fernandina Beach) today pleaded guilty to distribution of cocaine and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison for the drug charge and up to 10 years’ imprisonment for the firearm offense.


According to the plea agreement, Drummond sold cocaine to a confidential informant on three separate occasions. When he was arrested on January 26, 2017, he had a semi-automatic pistol in his pocket. Drummond has two prior felony convictions for drug sales and is therefore prohibited from possessing firearms or ammunition under federal law.


This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Nassau County Sheriff’s Office. It is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Michael J. Coolican.
