For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Southern District of Alabama

MOBILE, AL – A Mobile man was sentenced to 41 months in prison for conspiring to distribute fentanyl.

According to court documents, Eddie Rembert, 52, admitted that from at least September 2022 through February 2023, he conspired with other people to distribute fentanyl. On several occasions, narcotics agents used confidential informants to conduct controlled purchases of fentanyl pills from Rembert. Those transactions were videotaped. Agents executed a search warrant at the apartment of one of Rembert’s coconspirators in Mobile in February 2023, seizing fentanyl and oxycodone pills, among other things. Agents also searched the coconspirator’s cell phone, which contained numerous text messages from Rembert in which he discussed his sales of fentanyl pills.

In addition to the 41-month prison term, United States District Judge Terry F. Moorer ordered Rembert to serve a five-year term of supervised release upon his release from prison, during which time he will undergo drug testing and treatment. The court did not impose a fine, but Judge Moorer ordered Rembert to pay $100 in special assessments.

U.S. Attorney Sean P. Costello of the Southern District of Alabama made the announcement.

The Drug Enforcement Administration investigated the case.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Justin Roller prosecuted the case on behalf of the United States.
