A Quincy man was charged in federal court Tuesday on a cocaine charge.

Cary D. Holder, 30, is facing federal charges of unlawful possession of cocaine with intent to distribute. The case was initiated by the West Central Illinois Task Force in October. Holder was arrested at 435 N. Seventh and charged in state court with unlawful delivery of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver and resisting a peace officer. Those charges were dismissed in lieu of the federal charges.

According to court records, Holder has four felony drug convictions in Adams County. He is eligible for between 21 and 31 years in federal prison.
