U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Delaware

WILMINGTON, Del. – Subree Waterman, 38, of Wilmington, was sentenced yesterday by Chief U.S. District Judge Leonard P. Stark to five years in federal prison for distributing crack cocaine.

According to court documents, over the course of several months between March and June 2018, Waterman distributed crack on at least seven different occasions. Video of one transaction showed Waterman removing 42 grams of crack from plastic baggies, weighing the crack on a digital scale, taking $1,875 in exchange, and smiling and laughing as he counted the money.

David C. Weiss, U.S. Attorney for the District of Delaware, commented on the sentence, “The Defendant willingly chose to profit from peddling addictive, illegal drugs in our community. Today’s substantial sentence is the product of tireless work with our state and federal law enforcement partners to ensure that Delaware drug dealers face serious consequences for their actions.”

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (“ATF”) Wilmington Field Division investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Christopher R. Howland prosecuted the case.
