According to information presented in court, on November 13, 2019, members of the Memphis Police Department Organized Crime Unit conducted a search warrant at a residence where Segura was known to store and distribute narcotics.

On March 4, 2020, while executing an arrest warrant on Segura, members of the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office along with the United States Marshals Service recovered an additional 2.63 grams of marijuana and 17.56 grams of cocaine.

In April 2021, a federal grand jury returned an 11-count indictment against Segura charging violations of both the narcotics and gun laws. On October 21, 2021, the defendant pled guilty to possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine in violation of 21 U.S.C. § 841(a)(1).

On January 27, 2021, United States District Judge John T. Fowlkes Jr., sentenced Segura to 144 months in federal prison to be followed by five years’ supervised release. There is no parole in the federal system.

This case was investigated by the Memphis Police Department Organized Crime Unit, the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the United States Marshals Service, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF).
