Fort Myers, Florida – U.S. District Judge Thomas P. Barber has sentenced Christopher Gloster, Sr. (57, Fort Myers), aka “OG,” to seven years in federal prison for conspiring to distribute crack cocaine. Gloster’s son, Christopher Gloster, Jr. (30, Fort Myers), aka “Jitt,” was sentenced to five years in federal prison earlier this year for the same offense.
According to court documents, in April 2019, the Glosters approached a woman with a plan to establish a residence in Lee County from which she could use to sell their crack cocaine. Gloster, Jr. advised the woman on suitable locations and how to run the “trap house.” Over the course of the next month, the father-and-son team supplied the woman with approximately $7,000 in crack cocaine, often meeting her in busy parking lots, where they also gave her pointers on generating more business and avoiding law enforcement. The plan collapsed within a month.
Gloster, Sr. was arrested on May 15, 2019, during a search of his apartment. His son quickly confessed. In total, law enforcement seized nearly one pound of the duo’s drugs.
This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Lee County Sheriff’s Office. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Michael V. Leeman.
