COLUMBIA, SC—United States Attorney W. Walter Wilkins stated today that Cavedric McNair, age 27,of Charlotte, North Carolina, was sentenced in federal court by United States District Judge Terry L. Wooten to 216 months for conspiracy to distribute cocaine.
Evidence presented at prior hearings established that McNair, Deandra Maurice Adams, age 25, also from Charlotte, North Carolina, and Douglas McKendrie Mays, IV, age 28, of Cassatt, South Carolina, were part of a group responsible for the distribution of multiple kilograms of cocaine in both North and South Carolina since 2000. During 2007, confidential informants working for SLED made controlled purchases of cocaine from McNair and Mays. In October 2007, during a buy-bust undercover operation, McNair and Adams were arrested in possession of more than150 grams of cocaine. That same day the FBI executed a search warrant at McNair’s Charlotte residence, and found 600 grams of cocaine, along with the packaging for 28 kilograms of cocaine. Over $4,000 in cash and scales for weighing the cocaine were also found in McNair’s residence.
Co-defendants Adams and Mays,were previously sentenced by Judge Wooten to 90 and 38 months, respectively.
The case was investigated by the Chesterfield County Sheriff’s Office, SLED, and the FBI, and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney A. Bradley Parham of the Florence office.
