Two Noel Men, Crocker Man Indicted for Meth Conspiracy

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Tammy Dickinson, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that two Noel, Mo., men and a Crocker, Mo., man were indicted by a federal grand jury today for their roles in a conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine in Pulaski County, Mo., and McDonald County, Mo.

 

Michael Huckabey, 39, and Wesley A. Burrow, 34, both of Noel, and Steven C. McCurley, 50, of Crocker, were charged in an indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Springfield, Mo.

 

Today’s indictment alleges that Huckabey, Burrow and McCurley participated in a conspiracy to distribute 500 grams or more of methamphetamine in Pulaski and McDonald counties from Dec. 16, 2015, to May 9, 2016.

 

Dickinson cautioned that the charge contained in this indictment is simply an accusation, and not evidence of guilt. Evidence supporting the charge must be presented to a federal trial jury, whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.

 

This case is being prosecuted by Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Jody Larison. It was investigated by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, the Waynesville, Mo., Police Department, the Pulaski County, Mo., Sheriff’s Department, the Ozarks Drug Enforcement Team and the McDonald County, Mo., Sheriff’s Department.
