Virginia Man Sentenced Over 12 years for Trafficking Methamphetamine
ABINGDON, Va. – A Bishop, Virginia man, who conspired with others to traffic more than 4,500 grams of methamphetamine from Georgia and Tennessee into Lee County, Virginia, was sentenced today to 151 months in federal prison.
Bradley Allen Doss, 36, pleaded guilty in September 2021 to one count of possessing with the intent to distribute 500 grams or more of methamphetamine, one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and one count of possession of a stolen firearm.
“The U.S. Attorney’s Office is grateful for the coordinated, multi-agency investigation efforts of our law enforcement partners and remains firmly committed to prosecuting those who traffic in large quantities of methamphetamine that fuel the devastating addiction epidemic blanketing our Nation,” United States Attorney Christopher R. Kavanaugh said today.
According to court documents, a search warrant conducted at Doss’s residence on May 14, 2021 resulted in authorities finding over 4,500 grams of methamphetamine, $46,716 in cash, and multiple firearms. One of the firearms, a Ruger rifle, was found to be stolen.
Doss admitted to purchasing significant quantities of methamphetamine for further distribution from sources in Georgia and Tennessee.
The Tazewell County Drug Task Force, the Tazewell County Sheriff’s Office, the Virginia State Police, the Tazewell County Commonwealth Attorney’s Office, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives investigated the case.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Lena L. Busscher prosecuted the case.
