Deandre “DD” Miles pleaded guilty Wednesday in his federal fentanyl trafficking case.
Miles waived his right to have an arraignment before a United States district judge and consented to have the matter heard before a federal magistrate judge, according to court records.
Miles pleaded guilty to count five in the indictment against him. Count one against him will be dismissed.
Count five charges that on or about December 18 Miles knowingly and intentionally possessed with intent to distribute 400 grams or more of a mixture and substance containing a detectable amount of fentanyl.
District Judge Louise Wood Flanagan set the sentencing date of Miles to the January 8 term of court in New Bern.
A criminal complaint filed in the case alleged he “is a major supplier of heroin and fentanyl in Halifax and Northampton counties,” and was known to make several trips to locations including South Carolina to pick up large amounts of narcotics and bring them back to the Warner Bridge Road area of Northampton County.
Sentencing for Terry Louis Kearney, who took a plea in his heroin trafficking case, has been reset to January 8 in New Bern before Flanagan.
A federal indictment tied Kearney to Miles.
Kearney is pleading guilty to charges he knowingly and intentionally possessed with intent to distribute 100 grams or more of a mixture and substance containing a detectable amount of heroin.
The indictment against Miles reportedly links him to the distribution of 100 grams or more of heroin and 400 grams or more of fentanyl.
