Manzeil Charged with Cocaine Distribution

A local business man is in big trouble with federal prosecutors.

Bobby Joe Manzeil appeared in Federal Court in Tyler Wednesday. He was indicted on Posession with Intent to Distribute between 500g to 5kg of cocaine, and an additional count of Aiding and Abetting.

Manzeil was freed on $100,000 bond this afternoon.

Prosecutors say Red Oak resident Jimmy Stanton was involved with Manzeil in the plan to sell the cocaine.
