On Tuesday, Rodney Hall, 36, of Worcester was charged by criminal complaint in the U.S. District Court with one count of possession with intent to distribute more than 500 grams of cocaine and one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
On September 30, 2020, Hall was arrested after he sold approximately 14 grams of crack cocaine for $1,500 to an individual in Worcester. At the time of his arrest, Hall had approximately $2,300 in cash, two cell phones and a key to a Mercedes-Benz.
Law enforcement then executed a search warrant at Hall’s residence, where they located approximately 650 grams of cocaine, a loaded 9 mm Beretta semi-automatic pistol, a homemade pistol, ammunition, a digital scale, plastic baggies and approximately $7,000 in cash.
Hall is prohibited from possessing a firearm due to his criminal history, which includes previous convictions for possession of a large capacity weapon and trafficking cocaine.
