Man pleads guilty to conspiring to distribute pills in Beaver

A Tennessee man pleaded guilty in federal court Thursday to conspiracy to distribute oxycodone in Raleigh County.

Jerry Alan Davis, 42, of Chattanooga, admitted that from June 8, 2011, until Feb. 3, 2012, he conspired with a known associate to illegally distribute oxycodone pills in Beaver.

Davis further admitted that on several occasions, he and his associate transported oxycodone pills from the Chattanooga area to sell in Beaver. Davis also admitted that his car was used to transport the oxycodone pills from Chattanooga to a Beaver motel.

Davis admitted that on two occasions on Feb. 3, 2012, individuals cooperating with law enforcement authorities obtained 50 30-milligram oxycodone pills from him and his associate while inside of their rented motel room.

On that day, law enforcement agents executed a search warrant at the defendant’s motel room and seized a quantity of oxycodone pills and buy money that was used in the controlled drug transactions.

Davis admitted that he is responsible for distributing a total of 3200 30-milligram oxycodone pills over an eight-month period.    

Davis faces up to 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine when he is sentenced on Nov. 29.

The Raleigh County Sherriff’s Office conducted the investigation. Assistant United States Attorney John File is in charge of the prosecution.
