A man who was charged after a loaded .22-caliber handgun, about an ounce of crack cocaine and ammunition were found in April in an apartment off Robinwood Drive pleaded guilty Tuesday to possession of cocaine, according to court records.

Chaldin Pointdejour entered the plea during his trial in Washington County Circuit Court, according to Robert Veil, supervising attorney for the Washington County Narcotics Task Force.

Pointdejour, who previously listed an address of 11321 Youngstoun Drive, Apt. 1904, was sentenced by Circuit Judge M. Kenneth Long Jr. to four years in prison and given credit for 125 days served, according to court records. Pointdejour also was given three years of unsupervised probation, court records show.

In exchange for the plea, two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia, and charges of possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, possession of marijuana, possession of a firearm in relation to a drug-trafficking crime and possession of a firearm after being convicted of a disqualifying crime were dropped, according to court records and Veil.


The drugs and handgun were found March 30 inside the Youngstoun Drive apartment, court records show.

Inside the apartment, police found 86 plastic bags of suspected crack cocaine, several digital scales, glass smoking devices and three cell phones, court records show.

The handgun was found under a mattress and police found a plastic bag with ammunition on a closet shelf, court records show.

Court records showed a warrant check on Pointdejour revealed an active warrant from Florida.
