Orange Park man gets 10 years for five kilos of cocaine


Posted

JACKSONVILLE – U.S. Judge Marcia Morales Howard sentenced Peterson Fils-Aime, 37, of Orange Park, to 10 years in federal prison for possessing more than five kilograms of cocaine with the intent to distribute it. Fils-Aime entered a guilty plea on Dec. 12, 2023.

According to court records, Fils-Aime was the subject of a Drug Enforcement Administration investigation in 2022. DEA agents had received information that on June 3, 2022, Fils-Aime would be transporting large amounts of cocaine in Jacksonville in the St. Johns Bluff area. Troopers from the Florida Highway Patrol conducted a traffic stop on Fils-Aime’s car. An FHP canine unit alerted to the presence of drugs inside Fils-Aime’s car, and troopers recovered approximately seven kilograms of cocaine from inside the car. DEA agents interviewed Fils-Aime, who admitted that he was on his way to deliver the cocaine.

The Drug Enforcement Administration, the Florida Highway Patrol and the Jacksonville Beach Police Department investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Frank Talbot prosecuted it.
