Harvey L. Ireland, the meth slinger who earned the nickname "The Jumping Shrimp" way back in 2007 when he was teamed up with the Acord bunch in Olney because his substance-fueled actions prompted folks to opine that he was like the jumpy shrimp in Disney's "Little Mermaid" cartoon, is off to the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

Ireland, 35, of Olney, has been sentenced to 188 months in federal prison and five years of supervised release for conspiring to distribute methamphetamine, Steven D. Weinhoeft, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, announced today (Wednesday, February 13).

Mason was sentenced on January 22, 2019, to 262 months imprisonment and five years of supervised release.
