COURT NEWS EX-BALTIMORE COP SUPREME JONES WON EASY PLEA DEAL WHEN BUSTED BY G-MEN FOR FAKE USE OF CBP CREDENTIALS

FORMER BALTIMORE COP CONVICTED OF ILLEGALLY USING HIS CUSTOMS BORDER PROTECTION CREDENTIALS TO ENTER AIRCRAFT SECURITY AREAS WHILE OFF DUTY AND ARMED; GOT EASY PLEA DEAL OF JUST PROBATION; FALSELY STATED HE WAS A BALTIMORE COP WHEN CAUGHT IN DWI WRECK IN GEORGIA WHILE ON PRETRIAL RELEASE FOR FEDERAL RAP

BY KEN ROSSIGNOL

THE CHESAPEAKE TODAY

BALTIMORE, MD. – An innocuous press release issued by United States Attorney Erek Barron on Monday, October 30, 2023, reported that a plea deal was struck with a former United States Customs and Border Protection Officer, Supreme Jones, for him to plead guilty to lesser charges of the original criminal indictment which would have likely included significant prison time and instead be assigned to probation for five years. The sentence of probation also stated that Supreme Jones be prohibited from taking employment as a law officer during his time of probation. 

This was the exact wording of the first paragraph of the news release from Barron:
U.S. District Judge Stephanie A. Gallagher sentenced former Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) officer Supreme Jones, age 32, of Atlanta, Georgia and formerly of Maryland, today to five years’ probation after Jones pleaded guilty to two counts of entering an aircraft or airport security area in violation of security requirements.  As a result of his federal conviction, at least during his five-year term of probation, Jones will not be able to be employed in law enforcement.

It is almost hysterical what was not contained in the press release but was relevant and obtainable from the court records. This is not to imply that it is the job of Assistant United States Attorneys to include the more fun aspects of criminal law, such as the details of CBP Officer Supreme Jones – who may also be referred to as “Kemosabi” after he smuggled a puppy named “Tonto” from a dog breeder in Boston on board a flight by falsely claiming the pooch was a service animal being trained for a wounded veteran.  

The name of the French Bulldog puppy was listed in court records as Lilac, making the story smell better.

Officer Supreme Jones was first a City of Baltimore Police officer from 2014 until early 2019, when he began working for Customs and Border Protection. While serving as a Baltimore Police Officer, Supreme Jones and another officer were cleared for wrongdoing by the Baltimore City State’s Attorney in the shooting of a mentally deranged person on November 25, 2016, on Greenmount Avenue. The man was swinging two knives and claiming, as recorded on police body camera footage, that “I’ve got one life to live, and I’m not afraid to give it.”

The man survived the gunfire administered by the officers. Witnesses at the scene told investigators that the officers did everything they could to avoid shooting the man, who was never charged with a crime due to his mental status.  After his arrest on federal felony charges, Officer Supreme Jones, suspended by the CBP, was allowed to travel to Georgia, where one of his daughters lives with her mother.

In Clayton County, Georgia, Jones was involved in a traffic crash and was arrested for DUI. The car he was operating, a private vehicle, was illegally equipped with Blue Lights, and he falsely represented himself as a Baltimore Police officer. The DUI and traffic charges, as well as the Blue Lights Special charges, are still pending trial in Georgia in December of 2023.

The government had seized Jones’s passport as part of his pretrial release but agreed not to oppose a motion with the court for him to be able to travel to a friend’s wedding in Cancun, Mexico in 2022.

SUPREME JONES WAS DECLARED INDIGENT AND GIVEN TAXPAYER-PAID FREE ATTORNEY DESPITE BEING AN INTERNATIONAL TRAVELER

Jones became a world traveler of sorts, and after his suspension as a CBP officer, was able to quality as indigent and have the taxpayers pick up his legal fees.

Court documents show Supreme Jones went on personal travel to

  • St. Martin in 2022
  • Cartegena, Columbia in 2021
  • Cancun, Mexico in 2021

The plea agreement with the U. S. Attorney Erek Barron says Supreme Jones, on February 21, 2022, faked a limp to gain access as a special needs passenger while not declaring himself to be armed when boarding a flight to Atlanta from BWI in Baltimore.

The United States, through the undersigned counsel, hereby provides notice of its intent to introduce evidence intrinsic to the charged offenses, or, in the alternative, pursuant to Federal Rule of Evidence 404(b) as evidence of the Defendant’s motive, intent, knowledge and absence of mistake or accident, as follows.

The Defendant flew, in his personal capacity, on many flights between in or about March 2021 to in or about April 2022. On some of those flights, he did not declare himself to be a law enforcement officer (“LEO”) flying armed, which would have given him the option of transiting into the sterile area of Baltimore-Washington/Thurgood Marshall International Airport (“BWI”) through an access portal reserved for aircrew and armed LEOs—not the exit lanes through which the Defendant typically accessed the sterile area.

For most of these flights, a Security Identification Display Area (“SIDA”) badge access records reflect that Jones used the exit portal to enter the sterile area. Among these flights were several international flights, including a July 15, 2021, flight to Cancun, Mexico, a September 4, 2021, flight to Cartegena, Columbia, and a September 23, 2021, flight to Cancun, Mexico. Jones was not authorized to fly armed on these international flights. He nonetheless accessed the sterile area of BWI via the exit lane without following proper security procedures.

Between on or about February 14, 2022, and on or about February 27, 2022, Jones lied to American Airlines authorities about his military status in connection with a scheduled flight to the Caribbean island of St. Martin. To justify a flight change and/or late arrival without incurring a flight change fee, Jones falsely represented that a military unit to which he was assigned had been involved in an accident. Jones falsely identified his military superior as Major Rotman (the name of a Customs and Border Protection supervisor) and provided the fictitious phone number of 323-906-7108. Jones had in his possession at the time of his arrest an expired United States Air Force military identification card as well as an unexpired Baltimore City Police identification document.

On or about April 5, 2022, while still in his CBP uniform and on duty, Jones cut the line of customers at the Frontier ticket counter at BWI to purchase a ticket for a flight that same day to Atlanta. Jones properly declared himself to be a LEO flying-armed for this flight. This is the flight that caused the offense charged in count two of the indictment.

Subsequently, after concluding his duty shift, Jones changed into civilian clothes and, shortly before the trip departed, illegally accessed the secure area of BWI via the exit portal using his SIDA badge.

Almost immediately after entering the sterile area, Jones encountered FBI Special Agents Rodski and Gordon, who were waiting in anticipation of Jones’s entry. The agents spoke with Jones and asked Jones what he was doing and where he was going. Jones falsely stated he was on duty and was trailing someone. He did not admit that he was outbound in his personal capacity on a flight to Atlanta, which he shortly thereafter boarded. This falsehood is reflective of his consciousness of guilt about evading proper security procedures and requirements in effect at BWI.

“Kemosabi” Made False Claim of Bringing Service Dog “Tonto” onto Plane

On or about June 26, 2022, Jones flew roundtrip from BWI to Boston, Massachusetts, on Southwest Airlines flights 2064 and 801. He properly declared himself to be a LEO flying armed. He also falsely declared on federal transportation forms that a French Bulldog puppy named Lilac was a trained service animal accompanying him on the return flight from Boston to BWI.  French Bulldogs can cost several thousand dollars.

Charging documents state that on the U.S. Department of Transportation Service Animal Air Transportation Form, Jones falsely represented that this dog, Tonto, was a service animal trained by a kennel in Pennsylvania. He once again provided a fictitious phone number for the purported Pennsylvania kennel, 323-906-7108—the same phone number he previously provided to American Airlines personnel in connection with his false representation that he was in a military unit that suffered an accident. Jones subsequently admitted to Special Agent Rodski that the dog was intended as a pet for his daughter, not a service animal. Southwest Airlines does not permit non-service animals to be flown in the passenger compartment.

On or about April 5, 2022, while still in his CBP uniform and on duty, Jones cut the line of customers at the Frontier ticket counter at BWI to purchase a ticket for a flight that same day to Atlanta. Jones properly declared himself to be a LEO flying-armed for this flight. This is the flight that caused the offense charged in count two of the indictment.

Subsequently, after concluding his duty shift, Jones changed into civilian clothes and, shortly before the trip departed, illegally accessed the secure area of BWI via the exit portal using his SIDA badge. Almost immediately after entering the sterile area, Jones encountered FBI Special Agents Rodski and Gordon, who were waiting in anticipation of Jones’s entry. The agents spoke with Jones and asked Jones what he was doing and where he was going. Jones falsely stated he was on duty and was trailing someone. He did not admit that he was outbound in his personal capacity on a flight to Atlanta, which he shortly thereafter boarded. This falsehood is reflective of his consciousness of guilt about evading proper security procedures and requirements in effect at BWI.

CHARGES OF DUI IN A CRASH AND USING FAKE BLUE LIGHTS ON HIS PRIVATE CAR ARE STILL PENDING IN GEORGIA

Then, on October 8, 2022, Mr. Jones was involved in a car accident in the early morning hours in Clayton County, Georgia. It is alleged that Mr. Jones was under the influence of alcohol at the time and claimed to the other driver and responding law enforcement that he, Mr. Jones, was a law enforcement officer. At the time of the accident, Mr. Jones was driving a vehicle equipped with police lights that contained a uniform shirt, radio, and “Baltimore Police” Velcro patch. Mr. Jones was charged by the Clayton County Police Department with several Georgia traffic offenses, including DUI-Alcohol, less safe, under Ga. Code Ann. § 40-6-391(a)(1); failure to yield the right of way when turning left, § 40-6-71; and unlawful use of blue lights, § 40-8-90. The charges remain pending.

EDITOR’S NOTE: While there is little purpose for putting Jones in prison, he should be sentenced to working as a training aide for airport security.
