SALISBURY, Md.- A Wicomico County judge has sentenced a convicted Salisbury drug dealer to 15 years behind bars.

Nineteen-year-old Jamie Thomas Fagans was convicted and sentenced Monday on a charge of possession of a firearm during a drug trafficking offense as well as a charge of possession with the intent to distribute heroin. 

Fagans was given 10 years of active incarceration in the Maryland Division of Corrections for the firearm offense. He was also sentenced to 20 years with all but five years suspended on the drug charge.  That sentence was ordered to be consecutive to the firearm sentence for a total sentence of 30 years with all but 15 years suspended.  Upon release from prison, Fagans will be subject to two years of supervised probation. He was also ordered to forfeit a total of $375 of suspected drug proceeds and several firearms and ammunition which had been seized during the investigation of the case.

According to Wicomico County State's Attorney Matthew A. Maciarello, Fagans had been pending charges related to an Aug. 14, 2013, arrest by members of the Maryland State Police Gang Enforcement Unit and members of the Salisbury Police Department's Safe Streets Unit. 

Fagans was taken into custody following an Aug. 14, 2013, raid on a Salisbury home used for drug distribution, Maciarello said. The state's attorney said that during the raid, members of the Maryland State Police Gang Enforcement Unit and the Salisbury Police Department's Safe Streets Unit were able to recover a large amount of heroin and cocaine as well as an amount of marijuana, a digital scale and drug-related paraphernalia. Officers also seized three handguns, a shotgun, and a cache of ammunition along with $375, Maciarello said.

Maciarello noted that at the time of his arrest, Fagans was on probation for a charge of possession of a handgun.  A hearing on a violation of probation in that case is scheduled for Feb. 14. The state's attorney also said that Fagans' brother, Arnold, was murdered in January 2012 in a gang execution in Salisbury.
