“This should be a warning to dealers like McMurray: Do Not send your poison into the Southern District of Illinois.” said United States Attorney Wigginton.
According to the Indictment and other court documents, the conspiracy operated in Madison County, Illinois, and in the Eastern District of Texas, from approximately October 20, 2009, through July 6, 2010. McMurray conspired with others to manufacture and distribute methamphetamine. He mailed some of the finished product to a customer in Madison County, Illinois. Several of the mailings were intercepted by law enforcement authorities during the course of the investigation.
This investigation into methamphetamine manufacturing activity was conducted by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Illinois State Police, and the Angelina County Texas Sheriff’s Department.
