ATLANTA, GA. - Michael J. Moore, United States Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia, announced the sentencing of six members of a major cocaine organization, all residents of Macon, Georgia, on October 26, 2011. The Honorable Marc T. Treadwell imposed the following sentences:
The drug trafficking organization was headed by Andre Fowler and Hugh Fowler, along with Antonio Glover, who managed the finances for the organization. During its existence, the organization was responsible for obtaining between 10 and 15 kilograms of cocaine each week from a source in Atlanta, Georgia. Once purchased, the cocaine was transported from Atlanta to Macon by couriers employed by the Fowler organization and hidden in stash houses before being sold to area cocaine dealers.
The investigation, code-named “Fowl Play,” was a multi-agency investigation headed by the Drug Enforcement Administration with assistance from agents with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and the Macon Police Department. The case was prosecuted by the Lead Organized Crime Drug Task Force Attorney, Assistant United States Attorney Charles Calhoun.
“Through coordinated law enforcement efforts, we were able to dismantle the largest cocaine supply ring in East Macon. Our streets and neighborhoods are safer today with these drug dealers in federal prison,” said United States Attorney Michael Moore.John S.
