DEA -- Douglas' Son Moved 'Pounds' of Meth

8/6/2009 11:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Douglas' SonThe DEA claims Michael Douglas' son Cameron is a big time crystal meth dealer -- one who moved "pounds" of the drug since 2006.

According to his federal complaint filed in New York, DEA agents claim they ran a 3-year investigation, proving the 30-year-old actor sold "multiple pounds" of crystal meth to several people -- many of whom are now cooperating in the prosecution of Douglas.

All three witnesses mentioned in the document have pled guilty to narcotics violations. They are cooperating in the hopes of receiving a reduced sentence.

Douglas has been charged with one count of possession with the intent to distribute 500 grams or more of crystal meth and one count of possession with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of "Ice" -- which is the purest form of meth.

The DEA further alleges that Cameron deposited and withdrew tens of thousands of dollars in cash from the drug deals.

According to the indictment, Douglas was set up in New York after agents ran a sting operation-- in which they caught Douglas accepting $15,000 in cash in exchange for a promise to deliver a half pound of crystal meth.

Douglas later followed up with the drug buyer and had the following conversation, using drug code:

Buyer: "The bath salts are fabulous! Thank you so much."
Douglas: "Yeah, I thought you would like them my friend ... I was so excited for you to take a bath and see for yourself."

The docs say the sting hauled in somewhere around 215.2 grams of "ice."

If convicted on all counts, Douglas faces 10 years to life in prison.

To #95 holmes - Once again you show that you are an idiot with your street talk and clear racism. You don't know even know what color I am. Race has nothing to do with this. A drug dealer is a drug dealer. Maybe if you had an education you would be a proper citizen of this country, but you are simply a home grown terrorist. You and your drug dealing buddies are slowly killing off this nation and I know you could care less. And as for selling my mom, at least I know who my mother is. Your mother could be any number of the hookers walking the streets. And your dad was just another two dollar John. Take that to the bank, holmes.

His father probably cut off his allowance for doing drugs a few years ago. So Cameron decided to become a dealer himself.

Yeah    

Well, at least he will be able to get out of prison in time to attend his younger brothers high school graduation. What happened Cameron? No movie offers and daddy wasn't forking over the cash to support your lazy ass?

I guess 80 Million in a trust fund wasn't enough! What a stupid a..!! I hope they lock him up an throw away the key.. Rich, entitled jerk who sells for a thrill and gets innocent people hooked. His grandfather, father and Zeta Jones are all arrogant rich idiots who don't care about "us normal people who supported their movies" and the reason why they are rich.

She said in London when she testified against the magazine who got her crappy wedding photos that they were not like normal average people because they had mega-millions.

Sure they are not stressing it out. They abandoned him a long time ago. Micheal, the old man and Zeta are too into plastic surgery to face reality.

Yo, holmes. There is no set up here. This 30 year old man you call a kid is a criminal just like you. Any time there is someone busted for drugs, some dumb ass like you calls it a set up. Just keep it real and play the game. If you get busted for breaking the law, then deal with it. It's part of the rules. Everybody is at fault except for you, the real criminal. Now like I said before, get your ass back on the corner and sell that rock, son. And don't forget to save a piece for your mama. Bang, bang, bitch.

What a little douche. I guess I'd be a little douche, too, if I were him... seems like none of the acting talent or decent looks made their way to poor little Cameron.

I really hope he gets a second chance, everyone makes really bad mistakes sometimes and hopefully he can get out of the drug business and turn his life around. I'll pray for you

The crystal meth that boy Douglas is selling is NOT that garage/one-pot/backpack/homemade meth that makes the local news when there is a drug bust. The meth he is selling is coming from mega-labs that often are located in Mexico. He may come from rich parents and have the best lawyers, but if the charges are not dismissed on a technicality, HE WILL GO TO FEDERAL PRISON. Unlike Wall Street thieves and white collar criminals of that ilk, Federal Drug convictions have mandatory minimums that CANNOT be suspended or reduced for "good behavior". One of the reasons that it takes three years to arrest someone is to increase the proof of dealing and make the charges more severe. It is like some employers in a big box store that catch an employee stealing from the cash register. . .they often will not fire that employee immediately. Instead, they will allow the employee to keep taking from the cash register over a period of time (recording every instance) until the employee steals enough money to qualify for a FELONY GRAND LARCENY charge (and not the misdemeanor if charged when detected the first time--it also proves there is a pattern of theft and cannot be "explained away" as a "mistake").

what    

This is not a boy. Born Dec. 13 1978 makes him 31 years old. Was arrested in 2007 with liquid cocaine in a syringe in his car. This arrest because of the amt of rock is considered by DEA posession with intent to sell. Not so simple being a second offense and a Adult. He has been in three movies one was with his Dad and Grandfather. Drugs destroy the best and the worst of those who partake. Meth is wicked look at the Meth pocks on his face. God his family must be suffering, what a waste of a life. I really enjoyed old man Douglas's films was truly a great actor.

4. I hope Michael Douglas realizes how dire his son's situation is. Posted at 11:13AM on Aug 6th 2009 by mytwocents

MD doesn't care. He has a new, younger wife now & two more kids. That's all that counts in his world.
