A Bessemer man to spend more than 17 years in prison for drug and gun charges, officials say.
A U.S. District Court judge sentenced Corey Hines, 37, to 151 months in prison for trafficking drugs and 60 months for carrying a firearm during a drug trafficking crime, according to court records.
Hines pleaded guilty to the charges in December.
Hines sold methamphetamine and heroin on August 23, 2019, to a confidential source at a home in Bessemer according to the plea agreement.
Later that day, agents arrived to arrest Hines on narcotics charges, and discovered a semi-automatic pistol in his waistband, along with 248 grams of 97% pure methamphetamine, digital scales, and additional controlled substances containing a mixture of heroin and fentanyl, officials said.
“Finding and arresting criminals trafficking illegal drugs greatly improves the safety of the community by preventing this poison from finding its way onto our streets,” said Homeland Security Investigations Special Agent in Charge Katrina Berger.
Homeland Security Investigations along with the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency investigated the case.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Allison Garnett prosecuted the case.
