Landover Drug Dealer Sentenced To 14 Years In Prison

Greenbelt, Maryland –U.S. District Judge Paul W. Grimm sentenced Gregory Warrick, age 53, of Landover, Maryland, today to 14 years in prison followed by five years of supervised release for conspiring to distribute and possessing with intent to distribute five or more kilograms of cocaine powder. Judge Grimm enhanced Warrick’s sentence upon finding that he is a career offender based on two previous drug convictions.

The sentence was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein; Acting Special Agent in Charge William P. McMullan of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives - Baltimore Field Division and Chief Mark A. Magaw of the Prince George’s County Police Department.

According to his plea agreement, from May 2012 to March 2013, Warrick bought cocaine powder from a co-conspirator about two to three times a week. Warrick distributed the drugs to others. Beginning in November or December 2012, Warrick used an apartment located on Addison Road in Capital Heights to store and sell cocaine powder.

On March 22, 2013, Warrick bought cocaine powder. Later that afternoon, law enforcement executed a search warrant on Warrick’s vehicle while he was a gas station in Landover. They seized 6.22 grams of cocaine powder packaged in 22 baggies from Warrick. Shortly thereafter, law enforcement also executed a search warrant at the apartment Warrick used to sell drugs and seized 133 grams of cocaine powder packaged in 26 baggies, a scale and other drug paraphernalia.

Between five and 15 kilograms of cocaine powder was reasonably foreseeable within Warrick’s agreement to sell, and possess with intent to sell, cocaine powder.

United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein praised the ATF and Prince George’s County Police Department for their work in the investigation. Mr. Rosenstein thanked Assistant U.S. Attorney Leah Jo Bressack, who prosecuted the case.
