BALTIMORE MAN INDICTED IN MARIJUANA TRAFFICKING CONSPIRACY
Defendant Alleged To Have Distributed Over 100 Kilograms of Marijuana
BALTIMORE, Maryland - A federal grand jury indicted Long Thai Huynh, age 29, of Baltimore, today for conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute 100 kilograms or more of marijuana; and possession with intent to manufacture and distribute 100 or more marijuana plants, announced United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein.
According to court documents, DEA agents and Harford County Sheriff’s Office personnel searched Huynh’s residence on March 15, 2006 and recovered over 200 marijuana plants, equipment used to grow marijuana plants, a money counting machine, packaging equipment, numerous cellular telephones, identification cards and suspected drug tally sheets totaling over $300,000, as well as over $5,000 in cash.
Huynh faces a maximum penalty of 40 years in prison and a minimum mandatory sentence of 5 years, and a $2,000 fine. Huynh has been detained since his arrest on March 15, 2006 but was ordered to be released on electronic home monitoring by U.S. Magistrate Judge Susan K. Gauvey after a bail review hearing this afternoon.
An indictment is not a finding of guilt. An individual charged by indictment is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty at some later criminal proceedings.
United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein commended the investigative work performed by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Harford County Sheriff’s Department. Mr. Rosenstein thanked Assistant U.S. Attorney Christopher J. Romano, who is prosecuting the case.
