EXILED TO OVER 24 YEARS IN PRISON
Baltimore, Maryland - U.S. District Judge William D. Quarles, Jr. sentenced Sean Bundy, a/k/a “Bun Rock,” age 36, of Baltimore, today to 292 months in prison, followed by 10 years of supervised release, for conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute heroin, announced United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein. Judge Quarles enhanced Bundy’s sentence upon finding that he is a career offender based on four previous narcotics and violent crime convictions. Judge Quarles also ordered Bundy to forfeit cash and property acquired as a result of, or used to facilitate Bundy’s illegal activities, including over $190,000 seized from bank accounts controlled by Bundy.
The sentence was announced by United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein; Special Agent in Charge Richard A. McFeely of the Federal Bureau of Investigation; Baltimore Police Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III; and Baltimore City State’s Attorney Gregg L. Bernstein.
According to his guilty plea, from December 2007 to May 7, 2008 Bundy, working with co-conspirator Tyron Rich, a/k/a “Forty,” agreed to purchase heroin and other drugs. Federal agents recorded undercover conversations in which Bundy discussed his past drug activities and future drug needs and admitted on tape to selling kilogram quantities of heroin and cocaine. Bundy and Rich agreed to pay $65,000 for a kilogram of heroin and met with an FBI undercover agent at a rest stop in Elkton, Maryland to complete the purchase. Bundy also discussed the purchase of additional heroin and cocaine at that time. Bundy provided the FBI undercover agent with the $65,000 in cash for the heroin and was directed to pick up the kilogram of heroin, which was stored in a car at the rest stop. The FBI video recorded Bundy taking possession of the heroin and he and Rich were arrested.
Co-conspirator Tyron Rich, age 29, of Baltimore, was previously sentenced to 121 months in prison.
United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein thanked the Baltimore City State’s Attorney’s office, the Baltimore Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation for their assistance in the investigation and prosecution. Mr. Rosenstein commended Assistant United States Attorneys Kwame J. Manley and Robert R. Harding, who prosecuted the case.
