Maryland Man Gets 13 Years for Peddling Heroin, Fentanyl

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP)- A Maryland man has been sentenced to 13 years in prison for peddling a treacherous mixture of heroin and illicit fentanyl.           

The Anne Arundel County State's Attorney's office has identified the 27-year-old man as Branden Corey Williams of Edgewater.           

A circuit court judge has sentenced Williams following a conviction for possession with intent to distribute heroin.           

Prosecutors say police seized heroin capsules laced with fentanyl, a digital scale, cash, cell phones and other items from his home.           

Fentanyl and other strong synthetic forms of heroin is fueling overdose deaths amid America's coast-to-coast opioid epidemic. The opioid scourge is the country's worst-ever drug crisis.           

County State's Attorney Wes Adams said Thursday that county law enforcement will purse "anyone who seeks to turn a profit selling death."
