GULFPORT, Mississippi — A Carriere man is scheduled to plead guilty March 31 to federal charges of conspiring to distribute more than 50 grams of methamphetamine to Pearl River and Hancock counties.
The Sun Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1xxUrwQ ) 55-year-old Gerald Calhoun originally pleaded not guilty to the charges. His attorney notified the court that he would change his plea. U.S. District Judge Louis Guirola Jr. will hear the change of plea in Gulfport.
His co-defendant, Jaron Stubbs, 27, of Picayune, is scheduled for trial in June.
A federal grand jury indicted the two men each on one count of possession with intent to distribute meth and three counts each of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute meth.
According to court records, Calhoun allegedly dropped the drugs off to buyers and Stubbs supplied the drugs.
Court records show that in May, investigators obtained audio and video recordings of the sale of $1,000 in crystal meth at a Waveland home.
Authorities caught two other buys on tape in September, one in Picayune for $1,300 in crystal meth and another for $650 in crystal meth at a Waveland home.
In each case, records say, Stubbs drove the vehicle and Calhoun delivered the drugs to the buyers.
Both have remained jailed since their Jan. 6 arrest.
