Feds Charge Orlando Man with Trafficking Drugs

If Cobb is convicted on both charges, he would a face a minimum of 15 years in federal prison. Attorney Roger B. Handberg announced the charges. The indictment also notifies Cobb that the United States intends to forfeit the firearms and ammunition which are alleged to have facilitated the offenses.  

According to the indictment, on April 30, 2024, Cobb possessed with the intent to distribute 40 grams or more of a fentanyl mixture and 50 grams or more of methamphetamine. Cobb is also charged with possessing a firearm in furtherance of that drug offense.

An indictment is merely a formal charge that a defendant has committed one or more violations of federal criminal law, and every defendant is presumed innocent unless, and until, proven guilty. 

This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office. It will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Megan Testerman.
