North Carolina man sentenced to more than nine years in prison for drug charge

A Greenville man was sentenced Tuesday, August 24, 2021 to 110 months in prison for possessing heroin and fentanyl with intent to distribute, according to a press release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Eastern District of North Carolina. Tobia Mila Moye, 42, pleaded guilty to the charge on December 12, 2019.

Moye was serving a term of federal supervised release at the time of the new offense, stated the release.

According to court documents and other information presented in court, Moye possessed approximately 85 grams of a heroin and fentanyl mixture in March 2019. “He had just purchased the drugs and had enlisted the help of another person to drive him to the deal,” stated the release. “Moye was released from federal prison in July 2017 after serving a 102-month sentence for a cocaine and cocaine base (crack) conspiracy. Moye began serving a term of supervised release in December 2017 and resumed selling drugs within the year, continuing until the time of his arrest.”

Moye was also sentenced to 46 months in prison on the revocation of supervised release, of which 24 months run concurrent with the new charges, for a total of 132 months in prison on the new conduct and revocation combined, according to the release.

G. Norman Acker III, acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of North Carolina, made the announcement after sentencing by U.S. District Judge Louise W. Flanagan. The Greenville Regional Drug Task Force investigated the case and Assistant U.S. Attorney Lucy Brown prosecuted.
