A Gulfport woman pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court earlier this week to possession with intent to distribute 264 grams of pure methamphetamine.
Court documents say Mary Lou Harmon, 61, was allegedly receiving and distributing narcotics in D’Iberville. On July 8, 2020, agents intercepted a package sent to Harmon which contained 264 grams of pure methamphetamine.
Harmon pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance. She is scheduled to be sentenced on February 16, and faces up to 20 years in prison. A federal district judge will determine any sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.
U.S. Attorney Todd W. Gee of the Southern District of Mississippi and Special Agent in Charge Brad L. Byerley of the Drug Enforcement Administration made the announcement.
The case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration and Homeland Security Investigations. Assistant U.S. Attorney Erica Rose is prosecuting the case.See a typo? Report it here.
