Akron man indicted for his role in conspiracy to distribute 22 pounds of methamphetamine

An Akron man was indicted for his role in a conspiracy to sell 22 pounds of methamphetamine.

Floyd Randle, 29, was indicted in U.S. District Court on one count of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine.

According to court documents:

Randle had someone fly to Los Angeles on July 13, 2019 to transport $9,000 in cash. Once there, the person was told by Randle they would be given a package to transport from California to 161 West Tallmadge Avenue in Akron. The car the person was traveling in was stopped by police before they could deliver the 22 pounds of methamphetamine to the address in Akron.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation.  In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and, in most cases, it will be less than the maximum.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigations, Ohio HIDTA and Ohio State Highway Patrol. It is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Margaret Sweeney and Patrick Burke.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt.  A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
