Brumett Pleads Guilty to Attempted Possession

Kyle Michael Brumett, 24, pleaded guilty Friday in federal court to attempted possession with intent to distribute four kilograms of marijuana, U.S. Attorney Ronald W. Sharpe announced.

According to the plea agreement filed with the court, on Nov. 24 Brumett and Jordan Andrew Foster went to the Mail Stop at Crown Bay Marina on St. Thomas to pick up a package addressed to Brumett that had been tracked by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. When Foster exited the Mail Stop with the package, he was seen placing it in a vehicle Brumett was driving.

Foster pleaded guilty Feb. 10 to possession with intent to distribute marijuana.

Brumett faces a maximum sentence of five years imprisonment and a $250,000 fine. District Court Judge Curtis V. Gomez continued Brumett’s status in official detention. A sentencing date has been set for June 13.

The case was investigated by the USPIS and the DEA and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Nelson L. Jones.
