2 men sentenced on drug distribution charges

The following is a Press Release from the Western District of Louisiana:

United States Attorney Stephanie A. Finley announced today that Trevell Lamar Eggins, 35, of Alexandria, La., and Ennis Howard Miles, III, 34, of Lafayette, La., were sentenced on Friday in federal court in Alexandria, La., by U.S. District Judge Dee D. Drell for drug charges.

Eggins, who was charged in a three-count indictment for distribution of cocaine base was sentenced to 122 months in prison and four years supervised release. An investigation revealed that Eggins was distributing cocaine base "crack" in Alexandria, Louisiana from 2007 to 2009. Agents made numerous under cover purchases of cocaine base from Eggins totaling approximately one half kilogram.

Miles was sentenced to 90 months in prison and four years supervised release for charges stemming from a one-count indictment for possession with intent to distribute cocaine. The investigation revealed that Miles was supplying cocaine in both Alexandria and Lafayette, Louisiana. On June 28, 2010, agents arrested Miles in Lake Charles, LA with over three kilograms of cocaine.

Both cases were the result of an investigation conducted by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration code-named "Cracked Egg."

U.S. Attorney Finley stated, "These drug traffickers had no concern for the harm that drugs cause in our community. Because of their desire to make an easy buck, with no regard for the consequences, they are facing serious sentences. Anyone who deals in drugs should be clear that my office, along with our federal, state and local partners, will continue to aggressively prosecute crimes stemming from this type of illegal activity."

The case was investigated by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Alexandria Police Department, and the Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney J. Collin Sims.
