Two Anchorage brothers were each sentenced to 15 years in prison Wednesday for trying to traffic 154 grams of cocaine, 44 grams of crack, 27 grams of methamphetamine and 12 grams of heroin in Fairbanks two years ago.
Alaska State Troopers stopped Dwayne Dollison Jr., 37, and Kenneth Martin Douglas, 35, for speeding on the Parks Highway south of Fairbanks on Sept. 15, 2017. Troopers also stopped a rental car driven by Dollison and Douglas’ two female companions, according to court documents. The drugs and two Smith & Wesson 9mm handguns were found in the trunk of the rental car.
Investigators determined the men intended to escape prosecution if caught by putting the drugs and guns in the car driven by the two women. DNA evidence and fingerprints tied the items to Dollison and Douglas and they were both indicted in federal court. The brothers were charged with drug trafficking conspiracy, possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime and one count each of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Dollison and Douglas were convicted by a Fairbanks federal jury on June 12 of this year and sentenced Nov. 6 to 120 months for the trafficking conspiracy, drug possession and felon in possession charges. They were sentenced to 60 months for the charge of possessing a firearm in furtherance of a drug crime, for a total of 180 months — or 15 years — to serve. Both men will be on supervised probation for eight years after their release.
Dollison was sentenced to an additional seven months for violating conditions of his release in a previous drug trafficking conviction.
