U.S. Attorney Mike Hurst and DEA Special Agent in Charge Stephen Azzam announced that 30-year-old Tambra Brown of Grenada pled guilty before U.S. District U.S. District Judge Sul Ozerden to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine and 50 grams or more of actual methamphetamine.

During the investigation of a drug conspiracy ring, DEA agents learned through cooperating sources that Brown was involved in transporting narcotics from Texas to the Mississippi Gulf Coast. At least three cooperating sources identified Brown in a photo lineup and provided information about her participation in the conspiracy. According to the sources, Brown would travel from Grenada, Mississippi, to Houston, Texas, where she would pick up the methamphetamine, cocaine or large amounts of United States currency and then travel to the Gulf Coast. During another individual’s arrest, agents located some of the methamphetamines that were involved in the conspiracy and found that the drugs had a 90% purity level.

A Federal Grand Jury returned an indictment against Brown on August 7, 2018. DEA Agents arrested Brown on August 28, 2018, in Grenada, Mississippi.

Brown will be sentenced on May 17, 2018, by Judge Ozerden, and she faces a maximum penalty of life in prison and a $10 million fine.
