From U.S. Attorney's Office
U.S. Department of Justice, Western District of Kentucky
LOUISVILLE, KY (Wed 21 Jun 2017) - United States Attorney John E. Kuhn, Jr., announced the guilty plea of a Louisville felon, to possession with the intent to distribute cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine and to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, in United States District Court before District Judge David J. Hale.
Ambrocio Jennings, 42, pled guilty yesterday, to all counts of a federal criminal complaint and remains in federal custody. At the time of his arrest Jennings possessed a stolen Glock 21 handgun, approximately $170,030 U.S. Currency, approximately 3 lbs. 4.2 ounces of heroin, approximately 6 pounds of meth, and 23 pounds 5.9 ounces of cocaine.
According to the Affidavit attached to the criminal complaint, on February 8, 2017, a U.S. Postal Inspector identified two packages being shipped from a Los Angeles California address to separate Louisville addresses, including one to defendant A. Jennings at Helck Avenue. The intercepted parcels contained 4 pounds of meth and two pounds of meth. With assistance from Louisville Metro Police and the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, controlled deliveries of the two packages were made. Jennings was observed entering and exiting the residence on Helck Avenue. When law enforcement attempted to stop Jennings, he began driving erratically and at high speeds, away from the officers. in the direction of Preston Highway near Gilmore Lane. LMPD Air Patrol followed Jennings and witnessed him throw three bags from his truck near Davies Avenue. Further, LMPD Air Patrol directed police to locate and arrest Jennings, then landed their helicopter in a field adjacent to the Davies Avenue location. The three bags were recovered and contained the U.S. currency, handgun, heroin, meth, and cocaine.
At the time of sentencing, the United States will recommend a sentence of 188 months' incarceration followed by a period of supervised release. Sentencing is scheduled before Judge Hale on September 11, 2017, in Louisville.
Assistant United States Attorney Scott Davis is prosecuting this case. The United States Postal Inspection Service, Louisville Metro Police, and the Jefferson County Sherriff's Department are investigating.
