Local rapper heads to prison for meth trafficking
HOUSTON – A 43-year-old Houston man has been ordered to federal prison following his conviction of possession with intent to distribute meth, announced U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Patrick. Mack Biggers pleaded guilty Sept. 6.
Today, U.S. District Judge Alfred Bennett handed Biggers a 180-month sentence to be immediately followed by five years of supervised release. The sentence includes an upward variance due to Biggers extensive criminal history. At the hearing, the court heard additional information, including a presentation detailing how Biggers committed his narcotics offenses.
For several months in 2017 and 2018, Biggers acquired and sold various narcotics including meth and illegally possessed firearms. Biggers also produced and starred in rap videos that glamorized his illegal activities.
On Feb. 21, 2018, authorities conducted surveillance and subsequent arrest of Biggers as he attempted to flee from police at an apartment complex located on the 14700 block of West Oaks Plaza Drive in Houston. He had thrown bags down as he fled. Law enforcement recovered them, which were found to contain hundreds of pills made from various substances including meth and heroin.
He has been and will remain in custody pending transfer to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility to be determined in the near future.
The Houston Police Department and Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney John Michael Lewis is prosecuting the case.
