Tomolah Foy Indicted On Charges He Sold Crack Cocaine Near Ivanna Eudora Kean High School

KING OF THE SELFIES: Tolomah Foy of St. Thomas will not be able to take pictures of himself if he is sentenced to serve in a federal prison. Foy is accused of selling crack cocaine near a local high school.

CHARLOTTE AMALIE – A federal Grand Jury has returned an indictment today charging Tomolah Foy, 23, of St. Thomas with four counts of possessing with intent to distribute crack cocaine within 1,000 feet of a school, U.S. Attorney Ronald Sharpe said.

On December 12, 2016, Foy made his initial appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Ruth Miller and is on pretrial release, Sharpe said.

According to the indictment, in November and December of 2016, Foy sold and attempted to sell quantities of crack cocaine in the area of Red Hook within 1,000 feet of the Ivanna Eudora Kean High School.

If convicted, Foy faces a maximum sentence of not more than 40 years in prison, and a fine of up to $2,000,000, and at least six years of supervised release.

The case is being investigated by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Everard Potter.

Sharpe said that an indictment is merely a formal charging document and is not in and of itself evidence of guilt.

“Every defendant is presumed innocent until and unless found guilty,” he said.

CRACK FOR SCHOOLKIDS: The charging document says Tomolah Foy sold crack cocaine near Red Hook within 1,000 feet of Ivanna Eudora Kean High School. Foy faces a total of 40 years in prison if convicted of all of the charges.
