Greenbelt, Maryland – United States District Judge Paula Xinis has sentenced Glenn Wright, age 48, of Baltimore, Maryland, to eight years in prison followed by 3 years of supervised release for conspiracy to distribute and possess with the intent to distribute phencyclidine (“PCP”).

 

The sentence was announced by Acting United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Stephen M. Schenning; Special Agent in Charge Andrew W. Vale of the FBI Washington Field Office; Special Agent in Charge Gordon B.  Johnson of the FBI Baltimore Field Office; Chief Henry P. Stawinski of the Prince George’s County Police Department; Sheriff Melvin C. High of the Prince George’s County Sheriff’s Office; and Chief Peter Newsham of the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department.

Wright was a member of a drug trafficking conspiracy, which, according to his plea agreement, operated in Maryland and Washington, D.C.  Wright participated in the conspiracy by purchasing PCP from Alexander Patton and then transporting and distributing the PCP to others.  Wright made multiple purchases of PCP from Patton during the course of the investigation.  During the execution of a search warrant at his residence in December 2016, agents seized eight glass vials of an amber liquid that was later determined to be PCP.  The weight of the mixture and substance containing PCP that was recovered from Wright’s residence was over 100 grams.

Other members of the conspiracy who have been sentenced include:

 

Alexander Patton, age 41, of Waldorf, Maryland, sentenced to 120 months in prison, followed by 4 years of supervised release.

 

Reginald Duckett, age 49, of Washington, D.C., sentenced to 84 months in prison, followed by 3 years of supervised release.

 

Jermaine Washington, age 44, of Spotsylvania Courthouse, Virginia, sentenced to 37 months in prison, followed by 3 years of supervised release.

 

Acting United States Attorney Stephen M. Schenning commended the FBI, the Prince George’s County Police Department, the Prince George’s County Sheriff’s Office and the Metropolitan Police Department.  Mr. Schenning thanked Assistant United States Attorneys Joseph Baldwin and Gregory Bernstein, who are prosecuting the case.
