Guilty plea from Mississippi man dubbed ‘Reverend Bankroll’ in connection with illegal drug trafficking ring

A man from Mississippi has admitted to possessing more than 37 grams of methamphetamine with the intention to distribute it.

Ronald Glenn Cobbs, Jr., also known as Lil’ Ron and Reverend Bankroll, was found in possession of more than 37 grams of methamphetamine at his business in North Mart Plaza in Jackson, as stated in court documents.

Cobbs is set to receive his sentence on May 3, 2024, and could potentially face up to 40 years in prison. The decision will be made by a federal district judge, taking into account the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other relevant statutory factors.

An extensive investigation in Jackson, Mississippi, and its neighboring areas has led to a significant case involving illegal drug trafficking. This case forms part of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF) investigation, which aims to identify, disrupt, and dismantle high-level drug traffickers, money launderers, gangs, and transnational criminal organizations posing a threat to the United States. The OCDETF adopts a prosecutor-led, intelligence-driven, and multi-agency approach, leveraging the combined strengths of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to combat criminal networks.

The announcement was made by U.S. Attorney Todd W. Gee and Acting Special Agent in Charge Steven Hofer of the Drug Enforcement Administration.


The Drug Enforcement Administration, Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives, Rankin County Sheriff’s Office, Ridgeland Police Department, and Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics conducted a thorough investigation into the case.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Keesha Middleton.
