Three Southwest Michigan Residents Arrested After Methamphetamine Discovered in Pac-Man Machine

In an unexpected turn of events, Pac-Man, the iconic video game character, became the source of information that led to the downfall of a drug distribution ring in southwest Michigan. Three drug dealers found themselves facing the end of their operations as their activities were exposed by this unlikely suspect.

Three men have received official sentences for their involvement in the transportation of Methamphetamine and hydrocodone in southwest Michigan. Additionally, they were apprehended for conspiring to sell fentanyl, a highly dangerous substance that has become a leading cause of death within illegal drug networks in and around Michigan.

Portage resident Terrance Moore, aged 36, has been sentenced to 21 years and 8 months in prison for his involvement in a drug trafficking scheme in southwest Michigan. This week, he became one of three individuals to receive a sentence for their participation in the illegal operation.

Darnell Moore and Ellis Hull were sentenced to jail for their involvement in the sale of methamphetamine, fentanyl, and hydrocodone in the Kalamazoo area. These illegal activities occurred between January and March of 2023.

Authorities found methamphetamine hidden inside the game, prompting concerns about the presence of drugs in unexpected places. This incident highlights the importance of remaining vigilant and aware of potential dangers, even in seemingly harmless environments like gaming arcades.

During the search of Moore’s apartment in 2023, which authorities believed to be the central hub for the three individuals, law enforcement uncovered a substantial amount of methamphetamine weighing 330 grams, equivalent to over half a pound. The hidden stash was cleverly concealed within the arcade cabinet. Further investigation led to the discovery of two loaded firearms and 172 pills, later identified as hydrocodone.

When Darnell Moore was arrested, authorities discovered 27 grams of meth and 4 grams of fentanyl in baggies on his person. It is important to note that as little as 2 mg of fentanyl can be deadly.

According to a study conducted in 2018, it is estimated that around 2,500 individuals from Michigan lose their lives each year due to drug overdoses. Shockingly, almost 2,000 of these deaths are caused by synthetic narcotics, including fentanyl.
