Mitchellville Crack Dealer Sentenced to 10 Years in Prison

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 27, 2011

Greenbelt, Maryland - U.S. District Judge Roger W. Titus sentenced Jimmy Reed Davis, Jr., age 29, of Mitchellville, Maryland, today to 10 years in prison, followed by five years of supervised release, for possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

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; and Chief Mark A. Magaw of the Prince George’s County Police Department.

According to Davis’ plea agreement, he sold crack cocaine to a law enforcement source on August 10, 2010, September 15, 2010, and October 14, 2010, in Prince George’s County. On November 12, 2010, Prince George’s County police officers stopped a vehicle being driven by Davis. Officers observed Davis making sudden movements by reaching behind the front passenger seat. After Davis exited the vehicle, officers conducted a pat down and recovered: a loaded 9 millimeter semi-automatic handgun from his waistband; approximately 108 grams of crack cocaine in a plastic bag in Davis’ right jacket pocket; and approximately $1,467 in cash from his front pant pockets.

That same day, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents searched Davis’ residence on Lake Shore Drive in Mitchellville and recovered: a black semi-automatic .40 caliber compact handgun, two black magazines, and 50 rounds of ammunition from a shelf in the master bedroom closet; drug paraphernalia, including a digital scale and 300 plastic baggies; and $4,000 in cash.

United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein commended the DEA and Prince George’s County Police Department for their work in this investigation and thanked Assistant United States Attorney Christen A. Sproule, who prosecuted the case.
