BaltimoreMaryland — Joel William Hammond, age 35, of Essex, Maryland, pleaded guilty today to conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute at least 28 grams of cocaine base.
According to his guilty plea, the Harford County Narcotics Task Force undertook an investigation into a drug trafficking organization DTO distributing powder and crack cocaine in Harford County, Maryland. On February 4,the Harford County Narcotics Task Force received authorization from a Circuit Court County Judge to intercept wire and electronic communication of drug trafficking organization members.
Over the course of the investigation, detectives intercepted numerous drug-related communications over social media and phone calls. The intercepted communications identified Hammond as a drug supply source.
Upon arrival, detectives observed members of the DTO make contact with Hammond. Detectives then observed one of the members of the DTO meet with several known drug users, following the meeting with Hammond.
Detectives believe this to be consistent with this individual obtaining two to three ounces of crack cocaine from Hammond, the source of supply for the DTO. Hammond met with members and customers of the DTO on at least 10 occasions between March and April Specifically, on March 31 detectives intercepted a series of communications indicating that a member of the DTO planned to meet Hammond to obtain crack cocaine. Investigators learned that Hammond sold approximately one ounce of crack cocaine to the individual during the meeting.
On April 21,investigators intercepted a communication that indicated that Hammond and a DTO member were to meet later that day. One of the bags contained a white rock like substance that was similar to powder cocaine that had been directly cut off a kilogram of pressed cocaine. In total, the substance was 16 grams in weight.
The second bag was an off-white rock like substance that law enforcement determined to be crack cocaine. The total weight of the bag was 41 grams. Both substances tested positive for the presence of cocaine.
The combined weight of the two bags was Hammond agrees it is reasonably foreseeable that the conspiracy involved at least grams but less than grams of crack cocaine. Hammond and the government have agreed that, if the Court accepts the plea agreement, Hammond will be sentenced to six years in federal prison.
District Judge Richard D. Bennett has scheduled sentencing for October 27, at 11 a. Lenzner thanked Special Assistant U. Attorney Christopher J. Romano who is prosecuting the case. You are here U. Attorneys » District of Maryland » News.
