Benton Harbor Men Convicted By Federal Jury In Crystal Meth Operation

Four Benton Harbor men who were part of a 24-member crystal meth ring are facing up to life in prison when sentenced next year. U.S. Attorney Andrew Birge says a federal jury in Grand Rapids found Darrell Summers the Second, Daryl Cannon, Timothy Mason, and Tremain Braxton guilty of multiple drug charges after a 10-day trial. Of the 24 people involved in bringing in meth from California and Arizona to southwest Michigan, 19 pleaded guilty and five were convicted by a jury. Birge says the operation sold meth all over the region from 2016 to 2018. During the investigation, police intercepted three shipments with a total of 14 pounds of crystal meth that was between 96% and 99% pure, with a street value of almost $100,000. Summers, Cannon, and Mason face minimum sentences of 10 years, while Braxton’s minimum sentence will be 15 years due to a previous drug conviction.
