KC Man Sentenced to 15 Years for Drug Trafficking, Illegal Firearms

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Tammy Dickinson, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that a Kansas City, Mo., man was sentenced in federal court today for his role in a conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine and for illegally possessing several firearms.

 

Marcus McIntosh, 60, of Kansas City, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Stephen R. Bough to 15 years in federal prison without parole.

 

On Dec. 2, 2015, McIntosh was convicted at trial of his role in leading a conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine between April 1 and Aug. 8, 2014. McIntosh was also found guilty of distributing crack cocaine and being a felon in possession of several firearms.

 

McIntosh sold crack cocaine to undercover detectives and confidential informants on several occasions between May and August 2014. On Aug. 8, 2014, law enforcement officers executed a search warrant at a residence that McIntosh was using as a “trap house,” a place to store and sell crack cocaine. McIntosh was placed under arrest; an adult woman and a child were also inside the residence.

 

During their search of the residence, investigators found a safe under the bed in a bedroom that contained approximately 49.6 grams of crack cocaine, approximately 29.2 grams of powder cocaine and $1,820. In another bedroom, investigators found a loaded Ruger .22-caliber handgun on top of an entertainment center, a Remington 12-gauge shotgun located next to the entertainment center and a loaded PW Arms 9mm handgun between the mattresses on the bed.

 

Under federal law, it is illegal for anyone who has been convicted of a felony to be in possession of any firearm or ammunition. McIntosh has prior felony convictions for possessing crack cocaine with the intent to distribute, distributing cocaine, possessing cocaine with intent to distribute, carrying a concealed weapon and robbery.

 

Two co-defendants, who are brothers, have pleaded guilty to participating in the conspiracy by distributing crack cocaine that was supplied to them by McIntosh. Tyrone Campbell, Jr., 30, of Raytown, was sentenced to eight years in federal prison. Tyronn Campbell, 25, of Kansas City, Mo., was sentenced to three years and 10 months in federal prison without parole.

 

This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Brent Venneman and Adam Caine. It was investigated by the Kansas City, Mo., Police Department and Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).
