Greenbelt, Maryland – United States District Judge Theodore Chuang sentenced Mitchell Felix Brooks, a/k/a “Speedy,” age 47, of Temple Hills, Maryland, to 129 months in prison followed by four years of supervised release, for conspiracy to distribute and possess with the intent to distribute 100 grams or more of a mixture of phencyclidine  (“PCP”).

The sentence was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Robert K.

Johnson of the FBI, Baltimore Field Office; Chief Henry P. Stawinski III of the Prince George’s County Police Department; Prince George’s County Sheriff Melvin C. High; and Chief Peter Newsham of the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department.

According to his plea agreement, Brooks was a member of a PCP trafficking conspiracy, which, according to his plea agreement, operated in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C.  Brooks maintained a stash house in Temple Hills, Maryland, where he stored, mixed, and packaged PCP belonging to him and co-conspirator Alexander Patton.  Brooks also distributed PCP directly to customers, including co-conspirators Jermaine Washington, Reginald Duckett, and Gilbert Davis.

During a search warrant executed at Brooks’s residence in December 2016, agents seized more than 250 grams of PCP in multiple bottles.  Many previously used empty bottles were seized, as were many smaller one-ounce bottle used for distribution.  At least 1 kilogram of PCP mixture was reasonably foreseeable to Brooks as a member of the conspiracy.
