Substantial Drug Bust

24 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.

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..

What a waste of time and resources. BUT, I guess it makes the politicians feel good about themselves.

Officer Pleads Guilty To Stealing Drugs From Evidence Room

http://baltimore.cbslocal.com/2017/12/22/aberdeen-cop-steals-evidence-room-drugs/

ABERDEEN, Md. (AP) — An 18-year veteran with a Maryland police department has admitted to stealing heroin, cocaine and Fentanyl from the agency’s evidence room.

The Office of the State Prosecutor said in a statement that 38-year-old Lt. Daniel Gosnell pleaded guilty Friday to misconduct in office and possession of a controlled dangerous substance. Authorities say Gosnell, who is with the Aberdeen Police department, was sentenced to three years of probation and community service.

According to a statement of facts, Gosnell repeatedly stole and consumed drugs from a citizen prescription drop box and the department’s evidence locker room.

Never said they ...they being the police...have and never did contraband..guns and drugs included.

Yes they steal.... I acknowledge that.

And I have also recognized that there are a lot of bad cops that need to be hauled into court. I have absolutely no problem with that

However.....30 pounds?

Further YOUR LINK IS FOR ABERDEEN... not where the arrest was made. IN OLD GOUCHER, BALTIMORE.

Try again.

Just admit that your peeps have issues .....it will be a LOT simpler.

Or is trolling your hobby.

This has been going on for years and years. Most of the drugs in the counties are bought in the cities. Hundreds of people drive into Baltimore City daily to buy drugs . . . and some can't understand why they have problems making a buy.

Police estimates are known to be waaaaaaay off, both for quality and quantity.

Lately we've found that there is no reason to ever believe them.

Oh I don't doubt that. When a 'spokesmen' can't ID a gun as being ...a pistol, or a revolver or automatic....well drugs....forget that.

NO poop. I saw about a year ago....some 'spokesmen' showing off the firearms they collected in a bust. Picks one up and id's it as an fully automatic (think machine gun) firearm. One problem; it was a S&W .44 mag. revolver.... stainless steel.... 4" barrel...with 'day glow' bright sites.

I picked that up in a glance.

Duh.

BTW you never addressed  my comment about your attempt at the location misdirect.

But that's ok....I'll assume you meant to say 'opppssss my bad'

Merry Christmas!

Ohhhh ....that was a given. Not a shocker on my part that you wouldn't.

I knew that the minute I hit the post button.

Not fentanyl or morphine after all.  As I was reading the story, I wondered if this was some elaborate reverse sting by the dealers to identify an informant, but since the raid did uncover some packaging materials, that doesn't seem likely.  What the hell was this stuff, then? Cutting material?

 

http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/crime/bs-md-ci-fentanyl-charges-dropped-20180103-story.html

Prosecutors have dropped all charges against two men arrested in the dramatic raid of an Old Goucher corner store last month after lab tests determined 29 pounds of suspected fentanyl and morphine that police seized from the store were not illicit drugs after all, the state’s attorney’s office confirmed.

Ahmed Alraohani, 49, and Sharif Shaibi, 22, both of the 5600 block of Hamlet Ave. in the city’s Hamilton Hills neighborhood, each spent about a month in jail following the raid of the Charles Village Discount Mart — where they both worked — before being ordered released after a court hearing Wednesday.
