SYLACAUGA, Ala. – A former Talladega County tax appraiser was sentenced to 20 years in federal prison last week after being convicted of possession of 50 or more grams of methamphetamine with intent to distribute.
Anthony Lamon Frazier, 39, was also sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Corey L. Maze to five years of supervised release after getting out of prison.
According to a news release, in October 2019, Frazier delivered almost two pounds of methamphetamine to an individual and used his Talladega County government work truck to distribute the narcotics. The individual Frazier delivered the methamphetamine to was an undercover officer with the Talladega County Drug and Violent Crimes Task Force.
“Today’s sentence sends a message to those dealing methamphetamine in our communities – you will get caught and spend time in a federal prison,” U.S. Attorney Escalona said. “I commend our law enforcement partners for their tireless work to eliminate methamphetamine distribution across the Northern District of Alabama.”
Frazier’s case was investigated by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Special Agent in Charge Mickey French as well as the Talladega County Drug Task Force.
Assistant U.S. Attorneys Blake Milner and Allison Garnett prosecuted the case.
