Man with ‘large customer base’ gets prison for Cobb stash house


A convicted drug dealer with “a large customer base” has been sentenced to prison for running a stash house in Cobb County.

Janmike Cortez Mosley, 28, was ordered Wednesday to spend 18 years in prison, the Cobb district attorney’s office announced in a news release Monday.

A jury convicted Mosley, whose last address had him living in Stone Mountain, of several drug trafficking charges on Aug. 17.

In November 2016, narcotics investigators found that he was selling heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine around Kennesaw and Acworth.

They searched a home off Cobb Parkway and, according to a warrant, found about 220 grams of marijuana and just under 40 grams of cocaine in addition to baggies and digital scales.

They also found an “AR 15-style rifle” and a pistol-grip shotgun.

He has previous Cobb convictions of theft and possession of firearms by a felon, prosecutors said.

“The defendant is a dangerous repeat offender who not only trafficked narcotics, he was armed. He was prepared to act violently to defend his business and lifestyle, according to his social media,” said prosecutor Jason Saliba.

Mosley is also charged with armed robbery and aggravated assault on an officer.

He is set to serve 17 years on probation once he’s released and was fined $100,000.
