An Alabama man faces prison time after admitting he had methamphetamine hidden in the spare tire of his car and intended to sell the illegal drug, federal prosecutors say.

U.S. Attorney Duane A. Evans announced today that Quincy White, 41, and a resident of Mobile, Alabama, pled guilty on January 10, 2023 before United States District Judge Greg G. Guidry to a one-count bill of information charging him with possession with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine, in violation of Title 21, United States Code, Sections 841(a)(1) and 841(b)(1)(A).

According to court documents, on October 24, 2021, federal and local agencies investigated White in LaPlace, Louisiana. After being arrested, White admitted to purchasing packages of “methamphetamine” from inside a spare tire that was recovered from inside of the vehicle he was driving.

White is scheduled to be sentenced on April 18, 2023. White faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years and up to life imprisonment, a fine of up to $10,000,000, at least five (5) years of supervised release following any term of imprisonment, and a $100 mandatory special assessment fee.

This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office, and the St. John Parish Sheriff’s Office. The prosecution is being handled by Assistant United States Attorney Lynn E. Schiffman.
