TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Federal authorities have arrested a Missouri man in Tucson for allegedly conspiring to smuggle drugs through the mail and having ties to a murder.

The U.S. Marshals Service says 26-year-old Cedric Miller was at the Pima County Superior Court for a hearing Tuesday morning on a state probation for a March 2012 money laundering charge.

Deputies arrested Miller without incident and transported him to the federal courthouse.

Authorities say Miller allegedly conspired in 2012 to possess and ship large quantities of narcotics to St. Louis, Missouri.

The U.S. Postal Inspection Service led the investigation and authorities say they discovered Miller allegedly had connections to a July 2013 murder in a “narcotics conspiracy.”

Details of the murder case weren’t immediately available and it was unclear Wednesday if Miller has an attorney.
