Baltimore, Maryland – U.S. District Judge Richard D. Bennett on December 15, 2020, sentenced Jermol McCoy, 37, of Catonsville, Maryland, to 10 years in federal prison, followed by five years of supervised release, for conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute heroin and fentanyl.

According to his guilty plea, from at least 2018 through 2019, McCoy conspired with others to distribute heroin, fentanyl, and crack cocaine in and around Baltimore.  During the investigation, law enforcement intercepted phone calls and text messages in which McCoy made plans to distribute drugs, spoke about the hierarchy of the drug trafficking organization, and discussed methods to avoid detection by law enforcement.

On November 21, 2019, law enforcement executed a search warrant at McCoy’s apartment in Catonsville, which he used to manufacture and distribute controlled substances.  Law enforcement recovered 4.9 grams of fentanyl in a plastic bag behind the microwave, cutting agent, and drug paraphernalia, including a kilogram press, digital scales, three boxes of plastic baggies, and cellular phones.  In addition, law enforcement recovered a loaded 9mm semi-automatic pistol concealed in a bag in the bedroom.  McCoy is prohibited from possessing a firearm or ammunition as a result of a previous felony conviction.

This case is part of an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) investigation.  OCDETF identifies, disrupts, and dismantles the highest-level criminal organizations that threaten the United States using a prosecutor-led, intelligence-driven, multi-agency approach that leverages the strengths of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies against criminal networks.
