Queen Anne’s County Drug Trafficker Exiled To 9 Years In Prison

Baltimore, Maryland – U.S. District Judge James K. Bredar sentenced Warren Troy Gibson, Jr., age 33, of Stevensville, Maryland, today to nine years in prison for conspiring to distribute narcotics.

The sentence was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein; Special Agent in Charge Stephen E. Vogt of the Federal Bureau of Investigation; Queen Anne’s County Sheriff R. Gery Hofmann III; Colonel Marcus L. Brown, Superintendent of the Maryland State Police; Colonel George F. Johnson IV, Superintendent of the Maryland Natural Resources Police; Annapolis Police Chief Michael A. Pristoop; Chief Charlie Rhodes of the Centreville Police Department; and Queen Anne’s County State’s Attorney Lance G. Richardson.

According to his plea agreement, from June through August 23, 2012, Gibson conspired with others to distribute and possess with intent to distribute cocaine hydrochloride and cocaine base in Queen Anne’s County, Maryland.

It was reasonably foreseeable to Gibson that between 500 grams and two kilograms of cocaine would be distributed to others during the conspiracy.
