A McComb man has been sentenced to 87 months in federal prison for his participation in an interstate drug trafficking operation distributing kilogram quantities of illegal drugs.

According to court documents, 41-year-old Denonta Thadison sold methamphetamine and cocaine in the Natchez area from 2016 through 2018.

On Tuesday, Thadison was sentenced for charges of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine hydrochloride, conspiracy and possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute crack cocaine, and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

Thadison’s sentence includes a penalty for recklessly creating a substantial risk of death or serious bodily injury to another person while fleeing from a law enforcement officer, as well as a penalty for committing the federal offense while he was under a criminal justice sentence for a state drug crime.

Court records reflect that Thadison has prior convictions in Lincoln County Circuit Court for possession of cocaine, and in Pike County Circuit Court for possession and sale of cocaine.

Additional conspirators in the drug distribution investigation include Kevin Singleton, of Natchez, and Sammy Davis Wright, of Woodville.

In September 2021, Singleton received a 35-year prison sentence as head of the interstate drug trafficking organization. At this time, Wright is scheduled to be sentenced on November 16, 2022.
