13 posts in this topic

The price of heroin will go up this Christmas season.

 

A raid on an Old Goucher corner store netted more than 16 pounds of suspected fentanyl and 13 pounds of suspected morphine, according to preliminary police estimates provided Wednesday.

Two men affiliated with the store have been charged with drug distribution, according to Baltimore Police and court records.

Ahmed Alraohani, 49, of the 5600 block of Hamlet Ave. in the city’s Hamilton Hills neighborhood, has been charged with fentanyl distribution as well as six other drug-related offenses, according to court records.

He was ordered held without bail on Wednesday.

Sharif Shaibi, 22, of the same block, has also been charged with drug-related offenses, police said, though his case did not appear in online court records as of Wednesday afternoon.
Capt. Jarron Jackson, a police spokesman, said police have since estimated that they recovered 7,500 grams of suspected fentanyl, or about 16.5 pounds, and 6,000 grams of suspected morphine, or about 13.2 pounds.

Also recovered were various packaging materials, such as vials, small containers, plastic tubes, clear gelatin capsules, and small Ziploc bags, Jackson said. Other containers with false bottoms were also discovered.

A substantial amount of cutting agent, used to mix with drugs, was found. In addition, about $2,000 in cash was seized, Jackson said.

Good!

 

If this was another pot bust they were beating their chest over I would have another comment.

But that garbage they got from the bust could save some lives.

Wonder how much the cops planted themselves.

I don't think cops are toting around 30 pounds of drugs to be planted.

Out my way in Chambersburg it is the wild west of drugs. Someone ODs just about everyday.

Reading various articles regarding the opioid crisis, it appears that it's not exclusively an urban problem and it's gone well beyond the "hillbilly heroin" stage. This fentanyl  stuff is apparently a serious problem everywhere..

That's why it's now a story despite the fact that it's nothing new.

Is your post some kind of insider White Marsh comment or are you playing Captain Obvious again?

Well actually ken....to many... this maybe new.

The Sun...at best has a page 8 local report on such things....from time to time about the deaths outside of BC. Most reporting is about BC...you have to admit that.

So...not until recently (as you have pointed out) has the problem become one that people are aware of being state wide since the Governor has stepped in and is making it a topic of discussion and more importantly...reporting. And the Sun is finally getting off it's duff and well reporting it with more zeal.

I will admit...that not until very recently had no idea that the problem was so wide spread. There I admitted it.

I think that is a fair assessment..
