Thursday, December 13, 2007

CAPE GIRARDEAU - A Sikeston man has been sentenced on charges of drug trafficking.

Eddie Lee Mills, 58, was sentenced to 10 years on one felony count of distribution of five grams or more of cocaine in a court appearance Tuesday in U.S. District Court.

On Nov. 24, 2006, a cooperating individual purchased more than five grams of crack cocaine (cocaine base) from Mills for $225 in Sikeston.

U.S. Attorney Catherine L. Hanaway praised the Sikeston Department of Public Safety and the Drug Enforcement Administration for their work on the case.
