Peddling Heroin & Fentanyl in Baltimore Region – Marilyn Mosby’s Favorite Drug Dealer Bounced Back on Streets Free as a Bird
GLEN BURNIE, MD – The Maryland State Police arrested a known gang member Tuesday on charges stemming from a multiple month investigation into suspected illicit drug dealing in Baltimore City and Anne Arundel County. In spite of the danger he poses to the citizens of Maryland, Cooley was immediately released on bond on June 5, 2019, under the rules of the Alice in Wonderland Maryland Judiciary, according to court records.
Dayvon Derrick Cooley, 39, of 2620 Patapsco Ave., Baltimore, Maryland, is charged with possession with intent to distribute heroin, possession with intent to distribute cocaine, possession with intent to distribute fentanyl, possession of fentanyl, possession of heroin, possession of a controlled dangerous substance and possession of controlled dangerous substance paraphernalia. He was taken to the Maryland State Police Glen Burnie Barrack for processing before being transported to Baltimore City Central Booking.
According to a preliminary investigation, in May 2019 the Maryland State Police Gang Enforcement Unit gathered the information that connected Cooley, a known Bloods gang member, to supplying illicit drugs in Brooklyn Homes in Baltimore City and Brooklyn Park in Anne Arundel County. Troopers, along with detectives from the Anne Arundel County Police Department, served a search warrant Tuesday on Cooley’s residence, where he was arrested at the scene. The Anne Arundel County Police Department Opioid Task Force assisted with this investigation.
Investigators seized the following as a result of the search warrant:
- 71.6 grams of suspected fentanyl
- 63.7 grams of suspected heroin/fentanyl mix
- 40.9 grams of suspected crack cocaine
- 19 grams of suspected marijuana
- $4,630 in suspected drug proceeds
- Multiple digital scales and hundreds of empty gel caps and vials used to package illicit drugs
The Maryland State Police say that they will continue to arrest illicit opioid dealers statewide, regardless of jurisdictional boundaries.
This investigation was made possible in part due to funds provided by the Maryland Opioid Operational Command Center. The Maryland Opioid Operational Command Center was established by Executive Order [01.01.2017.01] as part of the Hogan Administration’s 2017 Heroin and Opioid Prevention, Treatment and Enforcement Initiative.
With Cooley back on the streets the same day he was arrested, shows the public how toothless the effort is to curb opioids in Maryland.
The spineless and politically driven Baltimore City States Attorney Marilyn Mosby dropped sixteen drug distribution and related Grand Jury Indictments against Cooley and Ronnie Gibson, a co-defendant, in Baltimore City Circuit Court on July 24, 2018. Donald C. Wright was the defense attorney for Cooley, according to court records. The Indictments were handed down by the Grand Jury on Oct. 10, 2017.
Cooley entered a plea of guilty in a plea deal with States Attorney Mosby on Jan. 1, 2017 to a charge of possession with the intent to distribution of heroin. THE DEAL: in return for the guilty plea, Cooley was Probation After Conviction and sentenced to ten years in prison with nine years, eleven months and 26 days suspended – which failed to deter him from choosing a life of killing people to whom he sells heroin.
Cooley got another deal from Mosby on Jan. 2, 2013 when he entered a guilty plea to dealing drugs. THE DEAL: Cooley was sentenced to five years in prison with four years, eleven months and 29 days suspended.
The people of Baltimore reelected the dimwit Mosby in 2018 and deserve exactly what they are getting – more gun violence, and more drug dealers killing innocent citizens caught in the crossfire and more heroin overdose deaths.
