Federal jury convicts Odessa man of dealing in cocaine

TAMPA — An Odessa man could face up to 30 years in prison, convicted Wednesday of dealing in hundreds of grams of crack and powder cocaine.

Antonius Russel Ford, 28, bought the drugs in Town 'N Country and sold them in Spring Hill and elsewhere, the U.S. Attorney's Office reported Thursday. He was indicted in May after investigators intercepted phone conversations between Ford and a supplier.

Agents recovered about 255 grams of cocaine and several thousand dollars in cash.

His sentencing has not yet been scheduled.
