McNabb To Serve 12 And Half Years On Drug Charges

Sunday, January 13, 2013

Chattanooga drug dealer Johnny "Buy Buy" McNabb has been sentenced to serve 12 and a half years in federal prison.

McNabb had been facing a much-longer stint as a "career offender," but prosecutor Chris Poole said he gave information that helped in other cases.

As a result of some of that information, he and his wife are facing threats on their lives, it was stated.

A city narcotics unit had served a search warrant on McNabb on June 3, 2010. Officers found $800 in his pocket along with 8.

6 grams of crack cocaine, digital scales, a pyrex dish with white powder in it and plastic baggies. A small amount of marijuana was also found.

Investigators said they put McNabb's girlfriend on the porch and kept him inside. They said he kept yelling "I love you" to her, and she then said everything in the house was hers. 

Police said they knew they had made several controlled drug buys from McNabb when the girlfriend was not around. She was asked where items were in the house, and could not tell where they were located.

Police on Jan. 25, 2012, said they got word about a drug operation on 49th Street. Officers could immediately smell marijuana. They found McNabb present with 5.9 grams of crack cocaine in plain view and 10 grams of crack in a Nike shoe along with baggies in a bedroom. More crack was on the kitchen counter.  

Police on Feb. 9, 2012, made a traffic stop involving a man who said he had just bought crack cocaine from McNabb at a house on Willow Street. McNabb was found there with the girlfriend. Officers found marijuana and cocaine. McNabb had $1,235 on him.
