Pair Sentenced on Federal Methamphetamine Charges

Roger Coley, Randall Doss Conspired to Distribute ICE Methamphetamine

Abingdon, VIRGINIA – A pair of men, who conspired with others to traffic ICE methamphetamine into Southwest Virginia for further distribution, were sentenced today in the United States District Court for the Western District of Virginia, United States Attorney John P. Fishwick Jr. announced.

 

Roger Coley, 60, of Rossville, Ga., previously pled guilty to one count of conspiring to possess with the intent distribute ICE methamphetamine. Today in District Court, Coley was sentenced to 57 months in federal prison.

 

Also in District Court today, Randall Nelson Doss, 52, of Chattanooga, Tenn., who previously pled guilty to one count of conspiring to possess with the intent to distribute ICE methamphetamine, was sentenced to 84 months in federal prison.

 

“This conspiracy brought large quantities of a very potent form of methamphetamine into Southwest Virginia and preyed upon the addictions of others,” United States Attorney Fishwick said today. “Law enforcement in this case worked cooperatively to dismantle this conspiracy and bring these defendants to justice.”

 

According to evidence presented at previous hearings, Coley and Doss assisted in a conspiracy to traffic ICE methamphetamine from Tennessee into Virginia. Specifically, Coley and Doss supplied ICE methamphetamine to co-conspirators Mike Warren, Summer Delp, Kevin Roark, Tim Montgomery, and others, who would typically travel from Virginia to Tennessee to purchase the methamphetamine. Once the methamphetamine arrived in Virginia, the group would further distribute the drug.

 

The investigation of the case was conducted by the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives; United States Drug Enforcement Administration; United States Marshals Service; and Virginia State Police. Special Assistant United States Attorney Kevin Jayne prosecuted the case for the United States.
