Macon Man Sent to Prison for Drugs, Firearms Charges
A Macon man has been imprisoned for drug and firearm charges.
37-year-old Ishmael Saleem of Macon was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment without parole, followed by 5 years of supervised release and a $200 mandatory assessment fee.
Saleem plead guilty to Possession With Intent to Distribute 1 kilogram of cocaine, 5 kilograms of marijuana and possession of firearms by a convicted felon.
The case against Saleem originated in October of 2010 when a U.S. Postal Inspector intercepted two packages from California which contained the cocaine. The packages were eventually delivered to Saleem. A search following the delivery uncovered the drugs and weapons.
U.S. Attorney Michael Moore told WGXA, "The coordinated efforts of the U.S. Postal Service, DEA, IRS, GBI and the Macon Police Department are to be credited for bringing about the successful conclusion of this investigation."
