26-year-old Missouri man arrested in Arizona by U.S. Marshals

Tucson, Ariz. – 26-year-old Cedric Miller of Missouri was arrested on the morning of Monday 13 October, 2014, by the federal authorities in Tucson, for allegedly conspiring to possess and smuggle drugs to St. Louis, Missouri, through the mail with an associate and having ties to a murder.

Miller appeared at the Pima County Superior Court located in downtown Tucson for a hearing on Tuesday morning for a money laundering charge that took place in March 2012. He was arrested by members of the U.S. Marshals led Violent Offender Task Force. Miller is currently under state probation.

The narcotic investigation was led by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and during the investigation, they discovered that Miller was allegedly linked to a murder that occurred in July 2013. He was working with an associate who was also involved in the “narcotics conspiracy” murder. Details of the murder case were not immediately available.

Miller also conspired to possess and ship large quantities of narcotics to St. Louis, Missouri in 2012.

At this point of the investigation, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service contacted the U.S. Marshals Metro Fugitive Task Force in St. Louis, Missouri, on 10 October, and requested their assistance in locating and apprehending Miller. The deputies soon learnt that Miller had ties to the Tucson area, so the local deputy U.S. Marshals were contacted for assistance.

Upon further investigation, the deputies found out that Miller had a court hearing related to a state probation case that occurred in March 2012. The U.S. Marshals soon started surveillance of Miller and were able to track him den to Pima County Superior Court. He was being accompanied with an unknown female associate.

Miller was arrested by the U.S. Marshals without incident and was transported to the DeConcini Federal courthouse for his initial appearance that afternoon. It is not yet clear if Miller has an attorney.

J.R. Ball, the Assistant Inspector in Charge of the St. Louis Field Office said that transporting illegal narcotics and other contraband through the U.S. Mail will never be tolerated. “The United States Postal Inspection Service is committed to ensuring the integrity and safety of the mail system for all law abiding customers and postal employees,” he said.

The United States Marshals Service has arrested more than 50 percent of all federal fugitives. It is the nation’s oldest federal law enforcement agency and serves more federal warrants than all other federal agencies combined.
