From June to September 2021, Miguel trafficked a substantial amount of methamphetamine in and around Mecklenburg County. Court records show that, on at least two occasions, Miguel sold methamphetamine to an undercover federal agent.

On one such occasion, on September 9, 2021, Miguel met with the undercover agent in the parking lot of a restaurant, where he sold the agent nearly one kilogram of methamphetamine.

On September 23, 2021, Miguel arranged another drug transaction with the undercover agent. When Miguel arrived to complete the transaction, law enforcement attempted to arrest him. Miguel fled, and law enforcement arrested him after a short foot chase.

Law enforcement searched Miguel’s vehicle. In the trunk, cops found nearly two kilograms of methamphetamine and a semiautomatic assault rifle loaded with a high capacity drum magazine capable of holding more than 100 rounds of ammunition.

As part of the law enforcement operation, investigators also executed a search warrant at Miguel’s drug stash house, from which they seized over three additional kilograms of methamphetamine.
