A man pleaded guilty Friday in U.S. District Court in Nashville for conspiracy to rob a home in Murfreesboro of about five kilograms of cocaine with intent to distribute it across state lines.
Jason Edward “Jazz” Potter, 34, conspired with two others to rob the home July 2012. The other defendants have been arrested and are awaiting trial.
The investigation used a confidential informant, an Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms undercover agent and audio recordings to arrest the suspects. The ATF agent’s special response team arrested the defendants at a storage unit during final preparations for the robbery.
Potter told an undercover agent that he has previously served time in prison for robbery related activities and had served as a “wheel man” for other robbery operations.
The sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 8. As part of the plea agreement, after sentencing, the government will move to dismiss the count for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine.
