GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - A Fresno, California, man is held for prosecution on charges alleging he’s the leader of a drug-trafficking organization that has shipped at least 14 pounds of meth to Mississippi.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/29JAvjF) 43-year-old Michael Eugene Moore will be arraigned in Gulfport federal court Monday on a four-count indictment involving ice, meth in its purest form.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Shundral Cole wrote in a court filing Moore was on parole in California when he directed others to ship meth through mail-courier services such as Federal Express and United Parcel Services.

Cole says several shipments of meth have been seized and several co-defendants have been arrested. Four co-defendants with lesser roles have received prison terms of 14 to 20 years.
