A Charleston man was sentenced Thursday to four years and nine months in federal prison for distributing crack cocaine.
Robert DeWayne Miller, 25, of Charleston previously pleaded guilty in June, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office. On March 1, 2012, officers with the Metropolitan Drug Enforcement Network Team arranged a controlled drug buy with the defendant using a confidential informant. Miller admitted that following a series of telephone calls, he met the confidential informant at a predetermined location in Charleston and sold 29.2 grams of cocaine in exchange for $1,100.
Miller also admitted that after completing the illegal drug transaction, he fled on foot from law enforcement and threw several bags containing suspected crack cocaine and cocaine on the rooftop of a Charleston business.
Law enforcement officers later apprehended the defendant and retrieved the four bags of cocaine that weighed about 113.3 grams and also recovered the $1,100 in prerecorded buy money from inside of the defendant’s vehicle.
Miller also admitted that he sold crack cocaine to an informant on two additional occasions in February of this year. On Feb. 23, he sold 12.3 grams of crack cocaine in exchange for $600 and on Feb. 28, the defendant sold 25.5 grams of crack cocaine in exchange for $1100.
