Ocala, Florida – United States District Judge Roy B. Dalton, Jr. has sentenced Dominique Lamar Oliver, 31, to 12 years in federal prison for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. Oliver had pleaded guilty on October 2, 2020.
According to court records, in July 2019, Oliver collided with a Marion County fire truck that had stopped for an accident on County Road 326. Moments after the collision, firemen observed Oliver attempt to conceal a backpack in the high grass of the median.
A Florida Highway Patrol trooper recovered the backpack that contained 39 Xanax bars, 27 Adderall pills, amphetamine and dexamphetamine pills, 1.7 grams of marijuana, .004 grams of cocaine, $250 in cash, a digital scale, and two cellphones.
Investigators also found a package addressed to Oliver containing 447 grams of methamphetamine (valued at between $25,000 and $35,000) inside Oliver’s disabled vehicle.
After his arrest, federal agents with the United States Postal Service, Office of Inspector General began investigating Oliver. Agents discovered that in the year leading up to the collision, Oliver had received 112 packages from source states including California, Washington, and Nevada. Oliver eventually admitted to the agents that he had been ordering marijuana, pills, and methamphetamine from the dark web and distributing the drugs in the Middle District of Florida.
