Wednesday, July 28, 2004

CAPE GIRARDEAU - A Sikeston man will spend the next 12 years in prison.

Veril Roy Wolff, 30, was sentenced to 120 months in prison on one felony count of being a previously convicted felon in possession of ammunition and 150 months on one felony count of possession with intent to distribute cocaine base. Wolff appeared in federal court Tuesday before U.S. District Judge E. Richard Webber.

On Oct. 17, 2003, a state search warrant was executed at Wolff's residence on William Street in Sikeston. At the time of the search, Wolff was in a bedroom of the home. Officers seized a small plastic bag containing 10 separate plastic bags of cocaine base from a pair of men's pants belonging to Wolff. Also seized was a container with 10 rounds of .45 caliber ammunition in a closet in the same bedroom. Wolff admitted possession of the cocaine base and ammunition and told officers he was going to distribute the cocaine base to others.

Wolff had been previously convicted of stealing, burglary, unlawful use of a weapon and possession of a controlled substance.
