Muskegon Man Indicted for Drug and Firearms Offenses

GRAND RAPIDS, MI—A federal grand jury indicted Larry Dwayne Diggs, also known as “Montana,” of Muskegon, Michigan for three drug and firearm related offenses. Specifically, the grand jury indicted Diggs for being a Felon in Possession of a Firearm and Ammunition, Possessing a Controlled Substance with Intent to Distribute, and Using and Carrying a Firearm During and in Relation to a Drug Trafficking Crime. The grand jury alleges in the indictment that Diggs committed these offenses on or about July 2, 2015. If convicted of these charges, Diggs faces up to life in federal prison.

The charges are the result of a joint investigation by the Muskegon Township Police Department and the Muskegon Major Crimes Initiative Task Force, which includes the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Michigan State Police (MSP), and the Muskegon City Police Department. The U.S. Attorney’s Office, the Muskegon County Prosecutor’s Office, and federal, state, and local law enforcement are working closely together to combat violent crime in the Muskegon area.

The charges in the indictment are only allegations and are not evidence of guilt. The defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty, and the government has the burden of proving his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
