A Maxton man was sentenced April 5 (today) to 144 months in federal prison for possession with intent to distribute cocaine and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.
On Aug. 3, 2019, the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office responded to a community complaint regarding drug sales at a residence in Rowland. During the investigation, deputies observed Cody Zachary Locklear, 29, run out of the residence and attempt to discard a firearm and a bag containing distributable amounts of cocaine, crack, marijuana, and various narcotic pills. Deputies recovered the firearm and the controlled substances and took Locklear into custody.
The Robeson County Sheriff’s Office investigated, U.S. District Judge James C. Dever III presided and Assistant U.S. Attorney Caroline Webb prosecuted the case.
