Escambia Man Gets 10 Years On Federal Meth, Weapons Charges

October 16, 2017

Anthony J. Fountain, 23, of Pensacola, was sentenced Friday to 10  years in federal prison after pleading guilty on July 20 to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and two counts of distributing methamphetamine.

In May 2017, an undercover agent purchased approximately 57.3 grams of methamphetamine from Fountain for $1,800.

Several days later, the agent purchased a firearm from Fountain, a previously convicted felon, for $150. The next day, the agent purchased approximately 70.3 grams of methamphetamine from Fountain for $2,350. Upon completion of the last methamphetamine transaction, law enforcement officers approached Fountain, who fled and began to throw potential evidence into Pensacola Bay. The discarded evidence was retrieved, and Fountain was arrested.
