BRIMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a 39-year-old Tuscaloosa man is under indictment for allegedly trafficking cocaine, and using FedEx to help him do it.

AL.com reports a four-count indictment charges Thomas Blanks II with conspiracy to distribute cocaine from March through May of this year in Tuscaloosa County.

According to the indictment, which was issued on Wednesday, Blanks distributed 500 grams or more of cocaine on May 17 using FedEx, a corporation involved in interstate commerce, to promote illegal distribution of drugs.

Additionally, U.S. Attorney Joyce White Vance say Blanks was a twice-convicted felon who, during the drug transactions, was in possession of a .390-caliber pistol and 9mm ammunition.
