Through an investigation led by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), agents learned that Cooper met an individual at a gas station in Monroe and sold methamphetamine. The amount sold was determined to be at least 50 grams. The case was investigated by the DEA and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Leon H. Whitten.
