Cameron Douglas: Not a Small-Time Meth Dealer

by at . Comments

Academy Award winner Michael Douglas' son Cameron Douglas, who was arrested last week for allegedly plotting to distribute crystal meth, doesn't nickel and dime.

The DEA alleges he moved pounds of the drug since 2006.

According to a federal investigation, DEA agents claim they ran a three-year sting, proving the 30-year-old sold "multiple pounds" of crystal meth to several people.

Many of those people are now ready to testify against Cameron Douglas.

All three witnesses mentioned in the document have pled guilty to narcotics violations. They are cooperating in the hopes of receiving a reduced sentence.

In other words, Cameron Douglas is the big shot they are rolling over on.

Douglas has been charged with one count of possession with the intent to distribute 500 grams or more of crystal meth and one count of possession with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of "ice" - the purest form of meth.

The DEA further alleges that Cameron Douglas deposited and withdrew tens of thousands of dollars in cash, and was poised to deal $18,000 in crystal meth.

According to the indictment, the perpetrator was set up in New York after agents ran a sting operation in which they caught Cameron Douglas accepting $15,000 cash in exchange for a promise to deliver a half pound of crystal meth.

The following conversation, in which they used drug code, was then captured:

Buyer: "The bath salts are fabulous! Thank you so much."
Cameron Douglas: "Yeah, I thought you would like them my friend ... I was so excited for you to take a bath and see for yourself."

The baths Cameron Douglas will likely be taking where he's headed are going to be far from fabulous. Officials say the sting netted somewhere around 215.2 grams of "ice," and if convicted on all counts, he faces 10 years to life in prison.
