Attorney General Announces Arrests In W. Baltimore Drug Gang


(Baltimore, MD) -- Nine people are facing charges in connection with an alleged drug-trafficking organization operating out of West Baltimore.

Maryland Attorney General Anthony Brown announced the arrests and indictments of members of the so-called "Wick Squad," based in and around the 2500 block of Edmondson Avenue.

Brown says those arrested face dozens of charges, including gun offenses and possession with the intent to distribute fentanyl and cocaine.

Three of the suspects have already pleaded guilty in the case and are serving prison time.

The investigation led to the seizure of eleven guns and large amounts of illegal drugs, ammunition and drug packaging material.
