PENSACOLA — Crestview resident Terrell Jerome Cochran will serve 10 years in federal prison after he was nabbed dealing methamphetamine from his home.

Cochran had been convicted previously for dealing drugs and of robbery, so his sentence reflects the prior felony convictions, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Florida.

Cochran was also illegally in possession of firearms at the time of his arrest, the release said.

He pleaded guilty last October to possession with intent to distribute and being a convicted felon in possession of firearms and ammunition. He was sentenced Monday.

Okaloosa County sheriff's deputies responding to a residential alarm met Cochran, 42, outside his home and “noticed a strong marijuana odor coming from inside,” the news release said.

After obtaining a search warrant, investigators found a rifle, a pistol and 136.7 grams of a substance containing methamphetamine, the release said. Cocaine and marijuana were also found.

Cochran had been convicted in 2002 with possession with intent to distribute cocaine and in 2008 with robbery. Both of those crimes were committed in Georgia, according to charging documents in the Florida case.

The case was brought as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), the release said. PSN is “a program that has been historically successful in bringing together all levels of law enforcement to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone.”

Assistant U.S. Attorney Ryan Love prosecuted the case.
