Authorities seek forfeiture of Gulfport bar

GULFPORT —

GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) — Federal authorities in south Mississippi have filed court documents seeking the forfeiture of a Gulfport bar that investigators say a man tried to trade for a large quantity of cocaine.

The documents filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Gulfport seek the forfeiture of the Eclipse Sports Bar, cars, cash and guns.

Victor Darnell Williams was charged in August with trying to trade the bar for 12 kilograms of cocaine. A judge ordered Williams held without bond pending the action of a grand jury.

A complaint filed in federal court said Williams met with a police informant several times from June through August in an attempt to by a large amount of cocaine for distribution.
