Pensacola Man Sentenced in Federal Court on Drug Charges

MOBILE, AL – A Pensacola, Florida, man was sentenced on August 10, 2021, to 10 years in prison for his participation in a conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine ice.
 
According to court documents, Cameron Alexander Michanowicz, 42, distributed large amounts of methamphetamine ice from his residence and his business in the Pensacola, Florida, area.  Many people from Baldwin County, Alabama, traveled to Pensacola to deal with Michanowicz and brought the drugs to Alabama for distribution here. When federal agents obtained a search warrant for Michanowicz’s residence and business, firearms, drugs, several cell phones, computers, and cash were seized.  Michanowicz provided a statement to the agents after being advised of his Miranda rights in which he admitted his participation in the illegal distribution of drugs.  Michanowicz was held accountable for the distribution of 10.4 kilograms of methamphetamine ice and one pound of heroin.

Chief United States District Court Judge Kristi K. Dubose imposed the 10-year sentence and ordered that Michanowicz would also serve five years on supervised release following his imprisonment.  Michanowicz will also undergo testing and treatment for drug abuse, and he will be subject to a search of his person and premises upon reasonable suspicion during that time.  No fine was imposed but Chief Judge Dubose ordered that Michanowicz pay $100 in special assessments.

The case was investigated by the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office, the Baldwin County Drug Task Force, and the FBI’s Safe Streets Task Force.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Gloria Bedwell prosecuted the case on behalf of the United States.
