Texarkana man sentenced to six years in federal prison for drug trafficking


Hot Springs, Arkansas – Kenneth Elser, United States Attorney for the Western District of Arkansas, announced that Curodrick Randle, age 41, of Texarkana, was sentenced today to 72 months in federal prison followed by three years of supervised release on one count of Distribution of Methamphetamine. The Honorable Susan O. Hickey presided over the sentencing hearing in the United States District Court in Hot Springs.

According to court documents, in September of 2015, Randle was being investigated by the Bi-State Narcotics Task Force for trafficking methamphetamine. Detectives with the Task Force used a confidential source to make contact with Randle, who went by the name “Boss” or “Gucci,” to arrange for a purchase of methamphetamine. Later that day, Randle met the source at a location in Texarkana, Arkansas, where he sold approximately 53 grams of methamphetamine. The substance was sent Arkansas State Crime Lab where it was confirmed to contain at least 37 grams of actual methamphetamine. Randle was indicted by a federal grand jury in September, 2015 and pled guilty on March 18, 2016.

This case was investigated by the Bi-State Narcotics Task Force and the Texarkana Arkansas Police Department. Assistant United States Attorney’s Jonathan Ross and Amy Driver prosecuted the case for the United States.
