Tharon Jamell Taylor, 27, of Pascagoula pleaded guilty Tuesday in federal court to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of methamphetamine.
On August 20, an informant made a controlled delivery to Taylor of 1,964 grams of 100 percent pure methamphetamine. The informant told the FBI that he had previously delivered Taylor drugs from Texas.
Prior to the delivery, a recorded phone call was placed by the informant to Taylor, and during the call, Taylor requested that they meet at his apartment in Ocean Springs.
Taylor met the informant in the apartment’s parking lot, and agents quickly arrested him when he reached for the bag in which the methamphetamine was located. Upon arresting Taylor, law enforcement searched his apartment and found money, a scale, methamphetamine, and a stolen handgun.
Taylor will be sentenced on June 26 and faces a maximum penalty of life in prison and a $10 million fine.
