Four Plead Guilty in Heroin Distribution Ring

Posted:
BALTIMORE- Four members of a heroin distribution ring, including a Grasonville man, pleaded guilty to various charges, according to the Department of Justice in Maryland.

William Ulysses Robinson, 38, of Grasonville, pleaded guilty to conspiracy on Oct. 20., as did Shawn Christopher Malley, 25, of Crofton, Md.

On Oct. 22, Reginald Jones, 26, of Bronx, NY, pleaded guilty to conspiring to distribute and possess with intent to distribute heroin. Jeffery Michael Anderson, 35, of Upper Marlboro, Md., pleaded guilty to conspiring to distribute and possess with intent to distribute one kilogram or more of heroin on Oct. 21.

According to their plea agreements, as early as Sept. 2013, Anderson and Jones worked with Rahdel Sharbaan to obtain bulk quantities of heroin from New York to bring to Maryland for further distribution. Sharbaan, of Bronx, NY, pleaded guilty last month to conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute heroin.

DOJ officials say Anderson would either travel to New York or have Sharbann and Jones bring heroin to him in Maryland via commercial bus. With Malley's assistance, Anderson used stash locations to store and cut the heroin, including a storage unit in Gambrills, Maryland, and Malley's home.

Once diluted, Anderson sold the heroin in bulk to several Maryland-based dealers who in turn sold to other dealers and end users. Robinson obtained drugs from Anderson which he distributed in street-level quantities. Jones used the drug proceeds from Anderson to pay the source in New York.

On May 14, 2014, justice officials said investigators used search warrants and seized 40.1 grams of heroin, cutting agents, packaging materials and paraphernalia from a storage unit, 49 grams of heroin from Anderson's vehicle, and $2,957, drugs, multiple cell phones and digital scales from Malley's home.

Anderson admitted that he agreed to distribute at least one kilogram of heroin.

Jones faces a maximum sentence of 40 years in prison for the conspiracy.

Anderson and the government have agreed that if the court accepts his plea agreement, he will be sentenced to 16 years in prison followed by five years of supervised release.

Malley and the government have agreed that if the court accepts his plea agreement, he will be sentenced to either 8 of 5 years in prison, depending on whether he is found to be a career offender, followed by four years of supervised release.

Robinson and the government have agreed that if the court accepts his plea agreement, he will be sentenced to 6 years in prison followed by four years of supervised release.

Officials say Robinson and Malley will be sentenced on Jan. 6 and 7, 2015, Anderson will be sentenced on Jan. 30, 2015, and Jones on Jan. 9, 2015.

As mentioned, Sharbaan, 31, previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy. Gary Barham, 52, of Easton, also pleaded guilty to conspiracy last month.
