VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Wesley "Westside" White, Sr., 38, of Valdosta, entered a plea of guilty Monday, to possession with intent to distribute more than 28 grams of crack cocaine before Senior U.S. District Court Judge Hugh Lawson in Valdosta.

White admitted that on June 3, 2013, a search warrant was executed at his residence, which yielded drugs intended for distribution.

During the search, investigators discovered six cookies of crack cocaine packaged in sandwich bags, seven bags of powder cocaine, a one gallon-sized bag of marijuana and a cocaine press which contained some of the cocaine, in the kitchen of the residence.

In the living room, officers found two quart-sized bags of marijuana, digital scales and $1216.00 in currency.

The Court scheduled sentencing for April 28.  White faces a sentence of a mandatory minimum of five years up to forty years imprisonment and a $5,000,000.00 fine, or both.

"In the Middle District of Georgia, people who deal drugs will face the full force of the federal authorities, specifically my office, which is made possible by the extraordinary cooperative efforts of our state and federal law enforcement agencies," said U.S. Attorney Michael Moore.

The case is the culmination of many years of investigation by the FBI Southwest Georgia Gang TaskForce, Lowndes County Sheriff s Office Special Operations Division, Valdosta Police Department and the Colquitt County Sheriff s Office. Assistant United States Attorney Robert D. McCullers is handling the prosecution for the Government.
