Law enforcement officers began conducting surveillance on Scott’s residence in March 2012 after receiving information from a confidential source that he was selling PCP and carrying firearms. At the time, Scott had five prior felony convictions, including possessing PCP and carrying a firearm.

A police detective saw Scott, who did not have a valid driver’s license, leave the house with another person and get into his black Lincoln Navigator, which was parked in front of the residence. When Scott started driving his vehicle, police officers conducted a traffic stop. Scott and his passenger, Candace I. Brown, both had outstanding Kansas City municipal warrants and were arrested.

An inventory search of the vehicle prior to towing was conducted and officers discovered PCP and a Jimenez 9mm handgun with no serial number in the center console of the vehicle. Officers also found a loaded Smith & Wesson 9mm handgun under the driver’s side floor mat.

Scott was also in possession of PCP on May 12, 2010. A Kansas City police officer drove past Scott’s parked vehicle and smelled the odor of PCP and marijuana. Officers saw a loaded Glock 10mm pistol in the driver’s side door pocket and Scott was placed under arrest. During an inventory search of the vehicle prior to towing, officers discovered a bottle of PCP in the center console.

On Aug. 16, 2010, Scott sold three PCP-dipped cigarettes to a confidential informant in a controlled undercover operation. Deputies from the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department executed a search warrant at Scott’s residence on Aug. 20, 2013, and found three bottles that contained PCP as well as drug paraphernalia.

Following the presentation of evidence, the jury in the U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Mo., deliberated for about three hours before returning the guilty verdicts, ending a trial that began Monday, Jan. 13, 2014.

Under federal statutes, Scott is subject to a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years in federal prison without parole, up to a sentence of life in federal prison without parole. A sentencing hearing will be scheduled after the completion of a presentence investigation by the United States Probation Office.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney William L. Meiners and Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Ann Booton. It was investigated by the Kansas City, Mo., Police Department, the Jackson County, Mo., Sheriff’s Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
