Arizona Man Sentenced to More Than 16 Years for Role in Drug Conspiracy

Ocala, Florida – U.S. District Judge Roy B. Dalton, Jr. today sentenced Tymane D. Hamilton (30, Phoenix, Arizona) to 16 years and 8 months in federal prison for conspiracy to distribute controlled substances. Hamilton had pleaded guilty on April 19, 2022.

According to court documents and evidence presented in court, Hamilton was involved in a drug conspiracy with accomplices in Lake County, Florida, that imported more than 100 kilograms of methamphetamine, over 50 kilograms of cocaine, over 1 kilogram of heroin, and over 50 kilograms of marijuana that were distributed in central Florida. Between 2018 and 2019, Hamilton agreed with others to ship 49 parcels containing illegal narcotics to Florida from source states, including Arizona and California. Once they arrived, the drugs were distributed to other dealers in the Middle District of Florida. Hamilton was responsible for acquiring the drugs and packaging them in parcels. On at least two occasions, he also personally shipped packages from California containing several kilograms of methamphetamine and marijuana.

In addition to Hamilton, three other conspirators have pleaded guilty and were sentenced by Judge Dalton as follows:
