St. Thomas, USVI – Aubrey Meyers, 64, was sentenced yesterday on his conviction for possession of cocaine, United States Attorney Gretchen C.F. Shappert announced.
Meyers previously pled guilty to the charge on January 21, 2020. In his plea agreement, he admitted that, on or about October 27, 2019, at the Cyril E. King Airport in St. Thomas, he possessed five small clear plastic bags containing a mixture or substance containing a detectable amount of cocaine. Court records indicate that Meyers was a ticketed passenger onboard a Spirit Airlines flight destined for Orlando, Florida when a routine search of his luggage identified the five plastic bags containing approximately 136 grams of a white powdery substance that tested positive for cocaine.
District Court Magistrate Judge Ruth Miller sentenced Meyers to time served and a one-year term of supervised release.
This case was investigated by Homeland Security Investigations and Customs and Border Protection. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Adam Sleeper.
