REISTERSTOWN DRUG DEALER SENTENCED TO 10 YEARS PRISON
Baltimore, Maryland - U.S. District Judge Catherine C. Blake sentenced Alvin Lomax Burruss, a/k/a Kenneth Kang, age 39, of Reisterstown, Maryland, today to 10 years in prison followed by five years of supervised release for conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute over 1,540 pounds of marijuana.
The sentence was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein; Special Agent in Charge Ava Cooper-Davis of the Drug Enforcement Administration - Washington Field Division; Anne Arundel County Police Chief James Teare, Sr.; Chief James W. Johnson of the Baltimore County Police Department; and U.S. Marshal Johnny Hughes.
According to Burruss’ plea agreement, as part of an investigation of the activities of Burruss, Jason Bibeault, Derek Honeycutt, Alfred Anderson and others, in April and May 2006, Anne Arundel County Police officers saw Burruss meet with Bibeault, in what appeared to be drug transactions. Search warrants were executed in several locations in Anne Arundel and Baltimore counties, including the residences of Bibeault, Honeycutt and Burruss, as well as a storage unit leased by Honeycutt. Heat-sealed bags containing approximately 300 pounds of marijuana and airline tickets in Burruss’ name were seized from one residence; and 330 pounds of marijuana were seized from Anderson’s truck parked outside of Burruss’ residence.
During the conspiracy, over 1,540 pounds of marijuana were distributed and intended for distribution.
Jason Bibeault, age 28, Derek Honeycutt, age 28 and Alfred Anderson, age 35, all of Glen Burnie, previously pleaded guilty and were sentenced to between 37 and 63 months in prison.
