A Caruthersville man has been sentenced to over 24 years in federal prisons on narcotics and firearms charges.
36-year-old Marcus Taylor received the verdict at the Cape Girardeau federal courthouse.
Taylor was wanted in August of 2015 for selling cocaine to a confidential informant multiple times.
Investigators discovered Taylor had four guns, ammunition, more than 300 grams of powder cocaine and over $140,000.00 in his home.
Taylor couldn’t legally own a gun because of previous criminal convictions.
He’d been convicted for drug trafficking three times before.
He pled guilty to the new charges last year.
