Published: September 4,2013
GULFPORT — Federal authorities in south Mississippi have charged a man with trying to trade a Gulfport bar for a large quantity of cocaine.
Victor Darnell Williams was arrested Friday. He appeared in U.S. District Court in Gulfport on Monday for a preliminary hearing.
The judge said there was enough evidence to send the case to a grand jury. He ordered Williams held without bond.
A complaint filed in court records says Williams met with a police informant several times from June through August to work out the purchase of a large amount of cocaine.
The complaint says Williams claimed to own the Eclipse Sports Bar in Gulfport and agreed to trade it for 12 kilograms of cocaine.
