Webster Groves Man Sentenced to 10 Years in Prison for Gun and Drug Crimes

U.S. District Judge Catherine D. Perry on Wednesday sentenced a man who was caught with a methamphetamine in a carjacked vehicle to 10 years in prison.

Taylor Aellen Foster, 26, of Webster Groves, Missouri, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in St. Louis in November to being a felon in possession of a firearm and possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.

Foster was found unconscious by St. Louis County police on August 7, 2022, in a parking lot at St. Louis Lambert International Airport. When he got out of the vehicle, officers spotted a handgun on the driver’s seat behind Foster and a catalytic converter in the trunk area that had been cut off a vehicle and stolen. As a convicted felon, Foster is barred from possessing firearms.

On March 12, 2023, officers at a convenience store on Page Avenue in Overland spotted Foster getting into a 2008 Mitsubishi Eclipse that had been carjacked the day before. The officers tried to pull the vehicle over, but Foster sped off, traveling from Page Avenue onto Interstate 170. After reaching speeds as high as 120 m.p.h., Foster crashed into a Volkswagen, causing that vehicle to hit a Pontiac. Foster ran away but passed out while police were pursuing him. Officers found nine counterfeit $100 bills, marijuana and the Eclipse owner’s work identification in Foster’s bag. They found almost 80 grams of meth in the Eclipse.

The St. Louis County Police Department and the Maplewood Police Department investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Tiffany Becker prosecuted the case.
