Friday, June 4th, 2010 at 6:43 am

A 26-year-old Minneapolis man pleaded guilty yesterday in federal court for distributing more than 500 grams of cocaine in October of 2008.

Appearing in Minneapolis before United States District Court Judge John Tunheim, Kevin Matthew Khamsisavang pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute 500 or more grams of cocaine. Khamsisavang was indicted on December 16, 2009.

In his plea agreement, Khamsisavang admitted selling approximately four ounces of cocaine on October 20, 2008. This arranged controlled purchase led to the execution of a search warrant at Khamsisavang’s residence, where officers seized 408 grams of cocaine, two loaded firearms, and numerous items of drug paraphernalia. Khamsisavang also admitted selling three ounces of cocaine on September 18, 2009, as well as conspiring with others to obtain and sell cocaine.

This case was the result of an investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration. It was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas M. Hollenhorst.
