ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A Mississippi man has been sentenced to three years in federal prison for methamphetamine trafficking in New Mexico.
Prosecutors say 25-year-old Charterious Laquess Moore of West Point was sentenced Thursday in federal court in Albuquerque and will serve three years of supervised release after his prison term.
Federal drug agents arrested Moore in January 2017 after seizing nearly 465 grams of methamphetamine from him during an interdiction investigation in Albuquerque.
Moore was accused of transporting methamphetamine to Albuquerque on a bus from Victorville, California with the intention of delivering the drug to another person in Tupelo, Mississippi.
Authorities say the meth was concealed in a heat-sealed bundle inside a pillow.
Moore was indicted and charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute.
He pleaded guilty in the case last September.
