RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a North Carolina drug dealer known as the “Cookie Man” has been sentenced to 10 years in prison on drug charges.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of North Carolina said Wednesday that a federal judge sentenced Jeffrey Bernard Moore on charges including conspiracy and cocaine distribution. Moore pleaded guilty last year.
Prosecutors said in a news release that Moore was among several defendants arrested in an investigation focusing on the trafficking of cocaine in Wilson County. They say the conspiracy involving Moore dated back to at least 2013.
The news release says law enforcement purchased drugs from Moore at his home and other places as part of the probe.
Defense attorney Mitch Styers declined to comment in an email Wednesday.
