Meth, Fentanyl, and Cocaine Trafficker from Green Cove Springs Receives Federal Prison Term

A resident of Green Cove Springs has been sentenced to six years in federal prison after admitting guilt to the intention of distributing various illegal drugs.

The case unfolded on January 30, 2023, when Clay County Sheriff’s Office deputies stopped 32-year-old Alyssa Avery in a rental vehicle for lacking a valid driver’s license.

A subsequent search, prompted by a canine alert during the traffic stop, revealed significant quantities of illicit substances.

Among the findings were over 20 grams of fentanyl in 17 sealed baggies, 60 grams of pure crystal methamphetamine, over 13 grams of cocaine, and more than 16 grams of cocaine base.

A digital scale was also discovered. Legal records indicated that Avery had been released from prison just a month earlier for methamphetamine trafficking.

Recently, a U.S. District judge handed down a six-year federal prison sentence to Avery for possessing methamphetamine, fentanyl, cocaine base, and cocaine with the intent to distribute.

Avery had pleaded guilty to these charges on October 19, 2023.
