      Fulton man gets prison time for marijuana, guns

      Brewer was sentenced as an armed career criminal based on his prior felony convictions.

      A Fulton man is sentenced to 15 years in federal prison on charges of possessing a large amount of marijuana with the intent to distribute and for being a felon in possession of firearms.

      According to U.S. Attorney Tammy Dickinson, Corey James Brewer, 30, of Fulton, drove to Kansas City in 2010 with a source cooperating with authorities and picked up a suitcase containing 50 pounds of marijuana. The vehicle was pulled over in Boone County on the return trip, and officers discovered a kilogram of cocaine under the seat of another defendant, Jason Randall Holloway of Callaway County.

      Holloway was sentenced to five years in federal prison in a related case.

      Upon searching Brewer's house, they discovered several guns and ammunition. By pleading guilty to the drug charges, Brewer admitted being a felon in possession of firearms. Previous convictions included property damage, auto theft, and nonsupport.
