JACKSONVILLE – U.S. Attorney Roger B. Handberg announces the return of an indictment charging Danny Ray Boree, 38, and Angela Denee Lynch, 47, both from Keystone Heights, with conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute 26.3 grams of methamphetamine.
Boree has also been charged with possessing a firearm as a convicted felon. Boree and Lynch each face a minimum mandatory term of five years and up to 40 years in federal prison for each of the drug offenses. Boree faces up to 15 years imprisonment for the firearm offense.
The indictment also notifies Boree and Lynch that the United States intends to forfeit a Raven Arms pistol traceable to the firearm offense. Boree was arrested on Sept. 8 and ordered detained. Lynch was arrested on Sept. 11.
According to the indictment and court proceedings, Boree is a member of The Unforgiven, a violent white supremacy gang. From an unknown date, but at least through June 2023, Boree and Lynch conspired to possess and distribute methamphetamine.
On June 8, Boree and Lynch were stopped at the corner of Swarthmore Drive and Dennison Avenue after the deputy saw Boree sitting in the passenger seat without a seatbelt.
During the stop, the deputy noticed a hatchet on the dashboard. According to the arrest report, when Boree was asked if there were any other weapons in the car, he said: “There might be.”
When Boree exited the car, the deputy said they saw him “manipulate an object in his waistband” that contained methamphetamine. CCSO also found three smaller baggies containing fentanyl and cocaine in his front pocket.
According to the indictment, Boree and Lynch possessed with the intent to distribute more than five grams of methamphetamine, and Boree also possessed a firearm. At the time of the drug offenses, Boree had previously been convicted in state court in Florida of 10 felonies, including battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting an officer with violence and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
As a convicted felon, Boree was prohibited from possessing a firearm under federal law. Boree had been released from the Florida Department of Corrections in January 2023 for his last firearm conviction.
An indictment is merely a formal charge that a defendant has committed one or more violations of federal criminal law, and every defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
This case was investigated by the Clay County Sheriff’s Office and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives – Jacksonville Office. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kevin C. Frein will prosecute it. Assistant U.S. Attorney Mai Tran will handle the forfeiture.
