Arkansas drug dealer gets life in prison – Asked New Aryan Empire gang to whack informant

By Gangsters Inc. Editors

A Pope County, Arkansas, drug dealer with connections to the New Aryan Empire prison gang was sentenced to life in prison on Wednesday. 55-year-old Marcus Millsap, of Little Rock, was convicted of conspiracy to violate racketeering laws, attempted murder in aid of racketeering, and conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.

Millsap was indicted in September 2019 for his involvement in the New Aryan Empire (NAE) prison gang. NAE’s slogan is “to the dirt,” referring to the fact that members must remain in the organization until they die. Millsap was charged with, and ultimately convicted of, conspiracy to violate racketeering influenced corrupt organization laws, or RICO, attempted murder in aid of racketeering,  and drug conspiracy.

In May 2014, Millsap sold methamphetamine to an individual named Bruce Hurley, who was working as a confidential informant. Once Hurley completed the controlled purchase of methamphetamine and reported back to law enforcement, a traffic stop located more methamphetamine in Millsap’s vehicle.

Millsap was convicted in the methamphetamine case, and while on an appeal bond, he solicited members and associates of NAE to kill Hurley for his work in cooperating with law enforcement against Millsap.

In January 2016, other NAE members attempted to murder Hurley. That attempt failed, and NAE members and associates continued attempting to arrange Hurley’s death. This conduct resulted in Millsap’s conviction for attempted murder in aid of racketeering.

“The United States will not tolerate the vile and outrageous crimes committed by members and associates of the New Aryan Empire or any other white supremacist group,” said Jonathan D. Ross, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Arkansas. “If you are a member or associate of this or any other violent criminal organization, know that the United States will stop at nothing to dismantle and disrupt those who pose a threat to our communities and the future of our children, and the United States will seek significant prison sentences.”
