ATF Agents Arrest St. Thomas Man on Crack Possession Charges

Tolomah Foy, 23, of St. Thomas made his initial appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Ruth Miller on Monday after being charged with possession with intent to distribute approximately 29 grams of crack cocaine, U.S. Attorney Ronald W. Sharpe announced.
Miller released Foy on a $10,000 unsecured bond and set Foy’s preliminary hearing for Wednesday.

According to the complaint, on Saturday agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives arrested the defendant in the Red Hook area of St. Thomas after agents allegedly made several purchases of crack cocaine from the defendant.

Under federal law, if convicted of possession with intent to distribute 28 grams or more of crack cocaine, Foy faces a minimum of five years in prison and a maximum fine of $5 million.

This case is being investigated by the ATF and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Everard Potter.
