Embattled Dancehall artist, Flippa Moggela could face up to 25 years in a U.S. prison after being indicted on federal drug charges, according to reports Saturday.

The 34-year-old deejay, whose real name is Andrew Davis, was among 15 people indicted by a state grand jury in New Jersey on Friday. It is alleged that Davis ran an international drug ring covering bases in Jamaica, California and New Jersey. Prosecutors say a postal service and other delivery systems were used to ship drug from California to New Jersey.

Both he and his 23-year-old brother, Kemar Davis, are facing charges of leading a drug-trafficking network, a first-degree offense that constitutes a sentence of 25 years to life in federal prison if convicted.

The other 13 accused in the case face charges including money laundering and conspiracy to distribute cocaine and money laundering.

Investigators were tipped off about the alleged ring during Operation Next Day Air, a two-and-a-half year investigation that started March 2011. Said tip was received thanks to two packages seized by local detectives, containing 8 kg of cocaine, purportedly being delivered to Flippa and an alleged associate.

Search warrants were executed in March of last year throughout New Jersey, seizing 26 kg of cocaine, worth US$780,000, two handguns and US$600,000 cash. Flippa’s brother, as well as an alleged associate, Marsha Bernard were arrested following the warrant’s execution while Flippa himself was arrested on Sept. 16 of last year in Los Angeles..
