Conspiracy to Distribute Phencyclidine (PCP) and Methamphetamine were the charges against a former Oklahoma State Prison inmate who was sentenced today to 324 months in prison and five years of probation. The sentencing hearing in the United States District Court in Fayetteville was presided over by the Honorable Judge Timothy L. Brooks.
Foreman, 39, was incarcerated at the Mack Alford Correctional Center in Atoka, Oklahoma in late 2020 or early 2021, according to court papers and evidence produced at trial. Two ounces of PCP were sold to a confidential source working for the Drug Enforcement Administration in Springdale in October 2020 by Foreman from his jail cell. Foreman used an illegal mobile phone to organize the sale of PCP, giving instructions to both a third person who delivered the drug and the secret source of the drug. Foreman then instructed the source to use the mobile payment app Cash App to pay for the PCP.
Over a kilogram of methamphetamine was sent from Foreman’s Oklahoma jail cell to Fayetteville in January 2021. Foreman delivered 360 grams of methamphetamine to a confidential source working with the Drug Enforcement Administration in the parking lot of a Fayetteville company using runner Sergio Rodriguez, who was convicted and sentenced to 60 months in prison for his involvement in the conspiracy. An additional 751 grams of methamphetamine heading for Fayetteville were discovered by police after Rodriguez was arrested in a traffic check following the delivery to a confidential source.
After a three-day trial, a federal jury found Foreman guilty on the 10th of September 2021.
The statement was delivered by U.S. Attorney David Clay Fowlkes of the Western District of Arkansas.
The Fayetteville Police Department and the Benton County Sheriff’s Office assisted the DEA in their investigation of the case.
Aaron Jennen and Hunter Bridges, two assistant U.S. attorneys, handled the prosecution of the case.
