Anne Arundel County Cocaine Dealer Exiled To Over 13 Years In Prison

Baltimore, Maryland – U.S. District Judge George L. Russell, III sentenced Daryell M. Rexrode, age 56, of Pasadena, Maryland, today to 160 months in prison followed by five years of supervised release for conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute cocaine.

The sentence was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein; Assistant Special Agent in Charge Gary Tuggle of the Drug Enforcement Administration, Baltimore District Office; Anne Arundel County Police Chief Kevin Davis; and Anne Arundel County State’s Attorney Anne Colt Leitess.

According to his plea agreement, from November 2012 through July 24, 2013, Rexrode conspired with Paul Rodney Cain and others to distribute cocaine. On November 16, 2012, Rexrode was arrested in Baltimore upon arriving to accept a controlled delivery of a kilogram of cocaine that he intended to split with Cain. Rexrode had an additional 344 grams of cocaine and more than 700 grams of methamphetamine in the trunk of his car.

In May 2013, law enforcement initiated wiretaps on two cell phones belonging to Cain and learned that Rexrode and Cain were building their inventory of cocaine. For example, on May 23 law enforcement overheard Rexrode and Cain discussed purchasing cocaine from multiple sources of supply. During this call, Cain told Rexrode that he had arranged to purchase a large quantity of cocaine from an individual whom law enforcement subsequently identified as Allan Ferdock. Law enforcement arrested Ferdock on May 24 after witnessing Ferdock purchase a kilogram of cocaine which he intended to re-sell to Cain. Law enforcement seized the cocaine.

Following Ferdock’s arrest, law enforcement intercepted many calls in which Rexrode and Cain, who did not believe that law enforcement had seized the cocaine, discuss confronting Ferdock about the cocaine that Ferdock had agreed to deliver. The conspirators devised a plan to have Cain take Rexrode’s brother to Ferdock’s residence to confront Ferdock.

On May 26, 2013, law enforcement intercepted a call in which Cain informed Rexrode that he had just left Rexrode’s brother at Ferdock’s home. In the early morning hours of the next day, law enforcement arrested Rexrode’s brother on Ferdock’s property. At the time of his arrest, Rexrode’s brother was wearing latex gloves and carrying a mallet, a knife and a roll of duct tape.

Daryell Rexrode conspired to distribute more than five kilograms of cocaine.

Paul Rodney Cain, age 48, and Allan Clay Ferdock, age 56, both of Pasadena, previously pleaded guilty to their roles in the conspiracy and are scheduled to be sentenced on May 8 and April 3, 2014, respectively.

United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein commended the DEA, Anne Arundel Police Department and Anne Arundel County State’s Attorney=s Office for their work in the investigation. Mr. Rosenstein thanked Assistant United States Attorneys Peter J. Martinez and Christopher J. Romano, who prosecuted this Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force case.
