Columbia, South Carolina---- United States Attorney Beth Drake stated today that Quentin Bernard Myers, age 42, from Conway, South Carolina was sentenced in federal court in Florence, South Carolina, for Possession with Intent to Distribute and to Distribution of a Quantity of Heroin and a Quantity of Cocaine Base in violation of 21 U.S.C. § 841(a)(1). United States District Judge R. Bryan Harwell of Florence sentenced Myers to 46 months imprisonment followed by 3 years of supervised released.
Evidence presented at the change of plea on November 29, 2016 and sentencing hearing established that in early 2015, members of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Florence, South Carolina, and the Fifteenth Circuit Drug Enforcement Unit (DEU) Conway, South Carolina were investigating cocaine base and heroin distribution in the Horry County and Georgetown County area of South Carolina. As part of that investigation, agents learned that Myers was involved in the sale of illegal drugs. Agents arranged a controlled buy of a quantity of heroin and a quantity of cocaine base from Myers in March 2015. Agents made additional controlled buys of heroin and cocaine base from Myers in May 2015 and June 2015.
The case was investigated by agents of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Florence, South Carolina, and the Fifteenth Circuit Drug Enforcement Unit (DEU) Conway, South Carolina. Assistant United States Attorney Christopher D. Taylor of the Florence office prosecuted the case.
