2 1/2 years on gun, drug charges

November 6, 2012 

A Lacey man was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison Monday in U.S. District Court in Tacoma after earlier pleading guilty to possession with intent to distribute oxycodone and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

According to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Seattle:

Dartania Davis, 34, had prior convictions for assault and drug possession that bar him from possessing a firearm. The FBI’s South Sound Gang Task Force began an investigation that led to Davis’ most recent conviction in May, after learning that Davis had moved from Pierce County to Lacey without informing his probation officer.

Davis was arrested for the violation, and a search of his vehicle turned up 60 oxycodone pills and a 9 mm semi-automatic pistol.
