Jury Convicts Orlando Man of Possessing Cocaine with Intent to Distribute


Orlando, Florida – A federal jury has found Tony Deshane Brown, a/k/a Antowayne Hill, a/k/a Antowayne Pollard (50, Orlando), guilty of possession with the intent to distribute cocaine. He faces up to 20 years in federal prison. His sentencing hearing is scheduled for December 16, 2020.

Brown originally had been indicted on June 8, 2016. A superseding indictment was issued on March 11, 2020.

According to testimony and evidence presented at trial, Brown fled from an Orlando duplex, with baggies of cocaine packaged for sale, as agents and officers were preparing to execute an unrelated search warrant next door. Brown encountered officers at the rear of his residence where he had hoped to hide the cocaine. There, officers discovered 18 baggies of cocaine in a prescription bag that Brown had been carrying.
