 A Picayune man was sentenced to 160 months in federal prison for possession with intent to distribute 27 grams of methamphetamine.

40-year-old Conel Lamont Holloway was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Gulfport.

According to court records, on November 2, 2018, Holloway sold 27 grams of methamphetamine to an individual for $700 in Picayune, Mississippi.

Holloway was indicted by a federal grand jury on September 7, 2022.  He pled guilty on November 29, 2023, to possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance.

U.S. Attorney Todd W. Gee, Assistant Special Agent in Charge Anessa Daniels-McCaw of the Drug Enforcement Administration, and Acting Special Agent in Charge Eric DeLaune of Homeland Security Investigations made the announcement.
