A federal grand jury returned an indictment Thursday charging Tomolah Foy, 23 of St. Thomas with four counts of possessing crack cocaine with intent to distribute it within 1,000 feet of a school, U.S. Attorney Ronald W. Sharpe announced.
Fox made his initial court appearance Dec. 12 before U.S. Magistrate Judge Ruth Miller and is on pretrial release, Sharpe said.
According to the indictment, in November and December 2016, the defendant sold and attempted to sell quantities of crack cocaine in the area of Red Hook within 1,000 feet of the Ivanna Eudora Kean High School.
If convicted, Foy faces a maximum sentence of not more than 40 years in prison, and a fine of as much as $2 million and at least six years of supervised release.
This case is being investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Everard E. Potter.
