It's Game over for three drug dealers in southwest Michigan after their distribution ring was given up by the most unlikely of suspects - Pac-Man.

Authorities say the three men have officially been sentenced for their roles in moving Methamphetamine and hydrocodone through southwest Michigan. Police also say they were caught on conspiracy of selling fentanyl as well, which has become one of the top killers in the illegal drug rings in and around Michigan.

Portage man Terrance Moore, 36, was officially sentenced  to 21 years and 8 months in prison for his role in a conspiracy to sell drugs in southwest Michigan this week, and is one of three to be sentenced this week.

Also, Darnell Moore, and Ellis Hull were given jail time for their roles in selling methamphetamine, fentanyl, and hydrocodone in the Kalamazoo area. The alleged crimes took place between January and March of 2023.

Game Over Meth in Pack-Man Machine

Police searched Moore's apartment in 2023, which they believed to be the center of operations for the three, and found 330 grams of methamphetamine, which is more than half a pound - hidden inside the arcade cabinet. After continuing to search the apartment, they found two loaded weapons, and 172 pills, later determined to be hydrocodone.

Even worse, when Darnell Moore was officially arrested, on his person they found 27 grams of meth, and 4 grams of fentanyl in baggies, ready to sell. For the record, fentanyl can be lethal by using just 2 mg.

It is estimated that nearly 2,500 Michigan residents die from drug overdoses every year, according to a 2018 study, and nearly 2,000 of those were due to synthetic narcotics, including fentanyl.
