BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - A man already in trouble following a Burlington drug bust Friday now faces federal charges.

Quenton Dodson, 33, was arrested Friday after Burlington Police raided homes in the Ledgewood Circle neighborhood and on Farrell Street in South Burlington. They say they found more than a kilogram of methamphetamine, several ounces of fentanyl and cocaine, two firearms, and more than $10,000.

Now, he’s been charged with one count of distribution of methamphetamine in federal court. He’s in the custody of the United States Marshals Service.

Burlington Police say Dodson has a lengthy and violent criminal history in Michigan, including shooting three men during a narcotics transaction in Ypsilanti in 2012.

The next hearing in the case is scheduled for January 31.
