Armed Mobile Drug Dealer Sentenced to Five Years in Federal Prison
MOBILE, Ala. – A Mobile man was sentenced to 60 months in prison for illegally possessing firearms in furtherance of drug-trafficking crimes.
According to court documents, Quentarious Jamaro Davis, 27, was arrested in June 2022 by narcotics agents who had obtained a search warrant for his house in Mobile. During the search at Davis’s house, agents found, among other things, 1.9 pounds of marijuana, digital scales, sandwich baggies, more than $2,400 in cash and four guns—including two .40 caliber pistols, a 9mm pistol and a 7.62x39 caliber pistol. In an interview with detectives, Davis admitted that he had a third party buy three of the guns for him at a gun show because he knew he was under a felony indictment in Mobile County Circuit Court and could not legally purchase the guns. Agents also seized and searched Davis’s cell phone, which contained hundreds of pictures and videos of bulk marijuana, pictures and videos that Davis took of himself holding bulk cash, and pictures and videos of Davis possessing guns in close proximity to vacuum-sealed marijuana, cash, and drug paraphernalia.
In August 2022, agents executed a separate search warrant at a storage unit in Mobile that Davis directed his girlfriend to rent on his behalf while he was incarcerated. Inside the unit, agents found an additional five pounds of vacuum-sealed marijuana. Agents then executed another search warrant at Davis’s house, seizing more than $9,800 in cash, additional marijuana, and jewelry.
In addition to the 60-month prison term (with credit for time served since June 2022), Chief United States District Judge Jeffrey U. Beaverstock ordered Davis to serve a five-year term of supervised release upon his release from prison, during which time he will undergo drug testing and treatment. The court did not impose a fine, but Chief Judge Beaverstock ordered Davis to pay $100 in special assessments. The court also forfeited Davis’s firearms to the United States.
U.S. Attorney Sean P. Costello of the Southern District of Alabama made the announcement.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Mobile Police Department investigated the case.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Justin Roller prosecuted the case on behalf of the United States.
