CLEVELAND - U.S. Attorney Rebecca C. Lutzko announced today that Brandon O. Chambers, 41, of Lorain, Ohio, was sentenced to 168 months in prison by U.S. District Judge Solomon Oliver after a jury convicted Chambers of one count of possessing methamphetamine with intent to distribute and one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

According to court documents and trial testimony, on October 28, 2021, Avon patrol officers stopped Chambers’ vehicle for speeding and having no license plates. Following his arrest, police found a firearm in Chambers vehicle along with approximately 218.7 grams of 99% pure methamphetamine. Chambers has multiple prior felony convictions and is therefore prohibited from possession of firearms.

The investigation preceding the indictment was conducted by Avon Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration. This case is prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Payum Doroodian and Vanessa Healy.
