Man pleads to selling pot on phone


TAHLEQUAH — A Tahlequah man pleaded guilty Thursday to accusations he used a communications device unlawfully.

Cameron Lydell Foster Jr., 26, was charged in federal court with using a cellular telephone on Feb. 22, 2012, while participating in the distribution of less than 50 kilograms of marijuana.

Charges were a result of an investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms Violent Crime Task Force, which includes the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office, District 27 District Attorney’s Drug Task Force, and police departments in Tahlequah and Muskogee.

U.S. District Judge Ronald A. White accepted Foster’s guilty plea and ordered the completion of a presentence report. Sentencing will be scheduled following its completion, and Foster will remain in custody of the U.S. Marshal Service.

The statutory range of punishment is up to four years in prison and up to a $250,000 fine.
