The case was brought as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods, a program designed to bring together all levels of law enforcement to reduce violent crime and make neighborhoods safer for everyone.

TAMPA – A man and a woman have pleaded guilty to charges arising out of sales of methamphetamine to an undercover detective in Brandon, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Joshua Christian Cantrell, 24, of Dade City, pleaded guilty last week to conspiracy to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine and to carrying a firearm during a drug trafficking crime. He faces a mandatory minimum term of 15 years, and up to life, in federal prison.

His co-conspirator, Tracy Lee Williams, a/k/a Tracy Lee Spann, 38, of Tampa, had previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine. She faces a mandatory minimum term of 10 years, and up to life, in federal prison. Sentencing dates have not yet been set.

According to the plea agreements, on three separate occasions, in April and May 2017, Williams sold methamphetamine to an undercover detective in Brandon.

During the first transaction, Williams sold the undercover detective about one ounce of methamphetamine. On the second occasion, she sold the detective about two ounces of methamphetamine. Cantrell drove Williams to conduct the third sale which involved about eight ounces of methamphetamine.

They were both subsequently arrested. Law enforcement found a loaded pistol in Cantrell’s waistband and a search of his vehicle revealed another pistol, additional weapons, ammunition, methamphetamine, and drug paraphernalia, the U.S. attorney said.

This case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods, a program designed to bring together all levels of law enforcement to reduce violent crime and make neighborhoods safer for everyone.
