Armed Fentanyl Dealer Pleads Guilty to Drug Trafficking

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Maryland

Baltimore, Maryland – Robert Frazier, Jr., a/k/a “Glass,” age 42, of Baltimore, Maryland, pled guilty today to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute fentanyl, cocaine and marijuana.  As part of his plea agreement, Frazier also agreed to forfeit two high-power rifles, a handgun, and numerous rounds of ammunition.  

The guilty plea was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Erek L. Barron; Special Agent in Charge Jarod Forget of the Drug Enforcement Administration - Washington Division; Sheriff Sam Cogen of the Baltimore City Sheriff’s Office; and Commissioner Richard Worley of the Baltimore Police Department. 

According to the plea agreement, law enforcement conducted an eviction at Frazier’s apartment in September 2021.  In order to evade capture, Frazier assaulted a Baltimore City Sheriff’s Officer and jumped from a second-story window before absconding in his car.  A subsequent search of the residence revealed quantities of fentanyl and marijuana, two rifles, including an AR-15 rifle which had been reported stolen, a digital scale, and cash. 

Law enforcement later observed Frazier selling drugs at a different location and subsequently made several controlled purchases of fentanyl and cocaine from Frazier.  Ultimately, law enforcement executed a search warrant at Frazier’s new residence and recovered cocaine, marijuana, a .38-caliber handgun, a digital scale, and drug packaging material.  In all, the parties agree that Frazier distributed up to 160 grams of fentanyl, which is enough to kill 32,000 people.     

U.S. District Judge Julie R. Rubin has scheduled sentencing for July 24, 2024, at 10:00 a.m.  Frazier faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.

U.S. Attorney Erek L. Barron commended the DEA, the Baltimore City Sheriff’s Office, and the Baltimore Police Department for their work in the investigation.  Mr. Barron also thanked Assistant United States Attorney Jason D. Medinger, who is prosecuting the case.
