JACKSONVILLE – U.S. District Judge Brian J. Davis sentenced Alyssa Brooke Avery, 32, of Green Cove Springs, to six years in federal prison for possession with the intent to distribute methamphetamine, fentanyl, cocaine base, and cocaine. Avery entered a guilty plea on Oct. 19.
According to court and arrest report documents, on Jan. 30, 2023, deputies with the Clay County Sheriff’s Office observed Avery driving in a rental car in Lake Asbury. The deputy knew she had a suspended license, and when she left a grocery store parking lot on Henley and Sandridge roads, he conducted a traffic stop.
K-9 Dante alerted deputies to the likely presence of illegal narcotics in the car. Deputies searched the vehicle and found more than 20 grams of fentanyl in 17 individual sealed baggies, 60 grams of pure crystal methamphetamine, more than 13 grams of cocaine, Loratab, Alprazolam, paraphernalia and more than 16 grams of cocaine base in a metal box that was wedged between the driver’s seat and the center console.
Detectives learned Avery had been released from the Florida Department of Corrections the month earlier for trafficking methamphetamine.
According to the National and Florida Crime Information Center, Avery’s license has been suspended 19 times since 2014.
The Drug Enforcement Administration and CCSO investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Aakash Singh prosecuted it.
