2 Anchorage men face life in federal prison for drug, gun convictions
In a statement Friday, U.S. Attorney for Alaska Bryan Schroder's office announced that two Anchorage men have been convicted on multiple charges for drug trafficking and firearm possession.
A jury found Kenneth Martin Douglas, 34, and Dwayne Dollison Jr., 36, guilty of drug trafficking conspiracy, possession of controlled substances with intent to distribute, possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime and being felons in possession of a firearm (due to previous felony convictions each man had).
Schroder's office says the charges stem from a traffic stop by Alaska State Troopers in September 2017 in the Fairbanks area. Dollison and Douglas were traveling in a caravan with an SUV and a red sedan.
The pair was in the SUV and denied any connection to the red sedan. However, the investigation revealed the occupants of the red sedan were able to prove they knew Douglas and Dollison by providing a rental car receipt in Douglas' name.
The investigation said the red sedan was found to have methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin in the trunk. The substances were stored in socks and placed in green and red duffel bags. The duffel bags each contained clothing and troopers found two firearms. One firearm belonged to Dollison and the other to Douglas.
Small bags of controlled substances were also found in the truck, the statement reads.
Dollison and Douglas face maximum sentences of life in federal prison.
