A 32-year-old man from Owensboro, Kentucky, has been charged by a grand jury for his alleged possession and operation of a pill press as part of a drug-trafficking operation, according to U.S. Attorney Michael Bennett.
According to an indictment, 32-year-old Sheridan Dowell, also known as Sheridan Green, is charged with possessing a tableting machine designed to manufacture a controlled substance, distributing fentanyl and alprazolam, and maintaining a drug-involved premise for the manufacture and distribution of heroin, fentanyl, and alprazolam.
If convicted at trial, the maximum sentence for Dowell is 20 years in prison, a $1,000,000 fine, and three years of supervised release.
Attorney Bennett says Dowell's charges stem from events occurring between June 24, 2020, and March 3, 2021, in Daviess County, Kentucky.
The case is being investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration Evansville Resident Office, Owensboro Police Department, and Daviess County Sheriff’s Office.
