Van Cleave Man Sentenced to 30 Years in Prison for Possession of Methamphetamine with Intent to Distribute

 

Gulfport, Miss. - Terry Lee Reddix, 43, of Vancleave, Mississippi, was sentenced yesterday by U.S. District Judge Louis Guirola, Jr. to 360 months in federal prison, followed by 5 years of supervised release, for possessing with intent to distribute methamphetamine in Vancleave, announced U.S. Attorney Mike Hurst and Special Agent in Charge Christopher Freeze with the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

On May 23, 2016, Terry Lee Reddix sold methamphetamine to a confidential source from his home on the "Hill" in Van Cleave, Mississippi. Reddix had been distributing methamphetamine from that locale for several years and law enforcement was able to make several purchases of methamphetamine from him. His sentence was reflective of his prior criminal history and the extensive organization he ran from the Hill.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney John Meynardie.
