ST. LOUIS – A jury found Bryan Kimble, 32, of St. Louis, Missouri guilty, Wednesday, of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine base and three counts of distribution of cocaine base following a three-day jury trial. United States District Judge Stephen R. Clark presided over the trial.
The evidence during the trial proved Kimble distributed cocaine base to an undercover Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Special Agent on three separate dates. Kimble also conspired with others to distribute cocaine base. In October 2019, ATF Special Agents received information from a confidential informant that Kimble was selling cocaine base. On October 11, 19, and 22, 2019, ATF successfully conducted controlled purchases of cocaine base from Kimble using an undercover agent. Kimble would drive to a location to meet the undercover agent on each date and use a female passenger to complete the drug transactions. In all, Kimble sold more than 30 grams of cocaine base to the undercover agent.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives investigated the case. Assistant United States Attorney Rodney H. Holmes and Special Assistant United States Attorney Ashley M. Walker handled the case.
