Homer man pleads guilty to meth distribution charge

HOMER, La. - A Homer man pleaded guilty last week to possessing with intent to distribute methamphetamine after a bag containing the drug was found in a relative’s dryer.

Acting U.S. Attorney Alexander C. Van Hook announced that Vincent McDaniel, 44, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge S. Maurice Hicks Jr. to one count of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.

According to the guilty plea, a relative of the defendant contacted law enforcement on Nov. 12, 2015 to report that she had found something suspicious in a bag, which was left in a dryer at her home in Homer.

After examining and testing the contents of the bag, law enforcement determined it was 526.7 grams of
methamphetamine.

McDaniel had asked for access to the home while the relative was away, and after his arrest, had asked other relatives to retrieve the bag for him before law enforcement could obtain it.

McDaniel faces 10 years to life in prison, at least four years of supervised release and a $10 million fine.  His sentencing date has been set for June 28.
