Look at the real face of the drug game, agents seized almost $2 million in cash and property from a former college baseball player, who pleaded guilty with a friend Wednesday to federal drug charges.
According to The State.com:
U.S. District Judge Terry L. Wooten accepted guilty pleas from Bradley Lewis Felder, 27, and Everette “Rhett” Carter Berry, 28, on charges, including conspiracy to possess and intent to distribute and to distribute a quantity of 3,4-Methylenedioxyethylc athinone Hydrochloride, commonly known as “molly,” and at least 50 kilograms of marijuana. Drug Enforcement Administration agents began investigating Felder, Berry and others in 2013 for importing and distributing high-grade marijuana and molly in Richland and Lexington counties.
Investigators learned Felder was importing the marijuana from northern California and the molly from an unknown source in China. Felder rented several houses and apartments in the area primarily to receive shipments of molly, the release stated.
Felder reportedly paid friends, including Berry, in cash or marijuana to accept the packages.
Former college baseball standout Bradley Lewis Felder of Bowman has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for his role in a drug conspiracy, acting U.S. Attorney Beth Drake announced Tuesday.
The 27-year-old Felder pleaded guilty in June to his involvement in a conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute and to distribute MDMA, also known as “molly,” and 50 kilograms of marijuana.
At sentencing, U.S. District Court Judge Terry L. Wooten ordered Felder to forfeit the money that had been seized from him. Wooten’s order included a money judgment against the defendant in the amount of $11 million.
