Man who used various methods to deliver drugs from Mexico and distribute them in S.C. gets lengthy prison sentence

South Carolina – Maurice “Black” Adams, a 29-year-old man from South Carolina, has been given a prison sentence of over 16 years for dealing drugs like meth, cocaine, and fentanyl. He was part of a group of 15 people charged with bringing in a lot of drugs from Mexico.

Maurice "Black" Adams, a 29-year-old man from South Carolina, has been given a prison sentence of over 16 years for dealing drugs like meth, cocaine, and fentanyl.

Suspects used various methods to get the drugs in South Carolina

They used different ways to get these drugs into the U.S., often mailing them from Arizona and other western states to South Carolina. Adams personally received around 1.8 kilograms of meth, one kilogram of cocaine, nearly a kilogram of fentanyl, and more than two kilograms of a drug called ice.

Judge David C. Norton decided that Adams should spend 198 months in jail, followed by three years of supervision by the court. It’s important to note that you can’t get parole in federal prison.

This case is part of a bigger effort by the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF). This group works to take down the biggest drug dealers, money launderers, gangs, and international crime groups that are a threat to the U.S. They use a team approach, combining the powers of federal, state, and local law enforcement.
