PHILADELPHIA – A federal jury, yesterday, returned a guilty verdict against Andrew Carr, 59, of Upper Darby, PA, on the charge of conspiracy to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine. Carr served as the “muscle” and collector of drug debts in a methamphetamine trafficking business which sold approximately $40,000 of methamphetamine monthly in the Philadelphia and Delaware County area. He also sold methamphetamine to his own customers. Carr was a member of the Chester chapter of the Warlocks outlaw motorcycle gang. A sentencing hearing is scheduled for August 17, 2016.
As a result of the investigation, eight members or associates of the drug trafficking business have been convicted. Carr is facing a mandatory minimum sentence of five years in prison with a maximum sentence of 40 years, a possible fine, and up to a lifetime of supervised release.
The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigations and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Maria M. Carrillo.
