Tampa man sentenced to over 10 years in prison for methamphetamine distribution

Tampa, Florida – U.S. District Judge William F. Jung has sentenced Cameron Mosley, a 30-year-old Tampa resident, to 10 years and 7 months in federal prison for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. Mosley entered a guilty plea on February 2, 2024.

Details of the Incident and Arrest

According to court records, the incident occurred on March 31, 2023. On that day, Mosley had a phone conversation with his co-conspirator, Enock Edouard, during which he used a codename to request methamphetamine. They also discussed how Mosley’s customers would use the drugs. The two arranged to meet at a restaurant in Tampa for the transaction.

Law enforcement officials were monitoring the situation and attempted to pull Mosley over after the deal was completed. Mosley fled the scene, and during the chase, helicopter surveillance captured him throwing an object from his car. Later that evening, Mosley and Edouard discussed over the phone how Mosley had to discard the methamphetamine to evade the police.

The next day, law enforcement arrested Mosley and recovered over 40 grams of methamphetamine from the spot where he had discarded it.

Co-Conspirator and Investigation

Enock Edouard, involved in the same drug trafficking activities, was convicted after a bench trial and is awaiting sentencing.

The investigation was carried out by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Tampa Police Department, and the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office. This operation is part of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF) initiative, which aims to identify, disrupt, and dismantle high-level criminal organizations. The OCDETF program uses a multi-agency approach led by prosecutors and driven by intelligence to tackle organized crime.

Prosecution and OCDETF Program

The case against Mosley was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Michael R. Kenneth. For more information about the OCDETF Program and its efforts to combat organized crime, visit justice.gov/OCDETF.

This significant sentence underscores the commitment of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to combat drug trafficking and distribution in Tampa and beyond. By dismantling criminal networks, authorities aim to reduce the availability of illegal drugs and enhance public safety.
