RICHMOND, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- A man from California has been sentenced to prison in a drug distribution case from Central Virginia.

According to a release, 38-year-old Mesuron Taylor of Los Angeles pleaded guilty to one count of distribution of 40 grams or more of fentanyl.

Court documents show that on two separate occasions in May 2022, he distributed a total of 59 grams of fentanyl to a cooperative source who was working for law enforcement in Richmond.

During both of these incidents, Taylor was also in possession of a Glock .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol and a Ceska Zbrokovka .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol. As a convicted felon, Taylor is prohibited from owning firearms.

These firearms were seized during a search of Taylor’s home on June 1. 2022. Officials also found money and cutting agents.

Additionally, Taylor was involved in the distribution of 843 grams of methamphetamine, delivered to a law enforcement cooperating source in September 2020.

During that transaction, Taylor agreed to supply a large amount of methamphetamine to a source in the Charlottesville area.

After agreeing to this, Taylor arranged for a courier to carry the methamphetamine from Richmond to the source.

Law enforcement officers caught the courier in Stuarts Draft, recovering all of the methamphetamine, on Sept. 3, 2020.

After the drugs were seized, Taylor contacted the law enforcement source to get details about what happened, demand payment for the seized drugs, and talk about potential future drug deals.

This case was part of an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force investigation called Operation Overdrive.

Taylor has been sentenced to 13 years in prison.
