Wicomico Heroin Dealer Sentenced


PRESS RELEASE

 

WICOMICO HEROIN DEALER CONVICTED OF

MULTIPLE FIREARM AND DRUG FELONIES 

 

                On May 3, 2016, a Wicomico County jury convicted Jermaine Peters, age 34, of Wicomico County, Maryland, of possession with intent to distribute a large amount of heroin, being a felon in possession of regulated firearms, possession of a regulated firearm during a drug trafficking crime and numerous other related offenses.

 

                

The events at issue stem from a Search and Seizure warrant which was executed on October 13, 2015, at 1402 Chateau Drive, Salisbury, Maryland.  When officers arrived at 1402 Chateau Drive to execute the warrant, Peters was located on the back porch and a female was located in living room of the home. As officers searched a dresser in the master bedroom of the home they located two stolen handguns which were loaded with ammunition, numerous gun magazines containing live ammunition and several boxes with additional live ammunition.  In the master bedroom closet, officers located a rifle and a shoe box which contained a large amount of U.S. currency.  The total amount of U.S. currency recovered from the home and Peter’s person was $118,667.26.  Officers also located over one kilogram of heroin in a nightstand located in the master bathroom.  The street value of the heroin was estimated to be over $700,000.00.  

 

Peters has multiple prior convictions including felony drug and firearms convictions.  Sentencing in this case was deferred to allow for a pre-sentencing investigation to be completed.  Peter’s potential total sentence on the offenses for which he was convicted is one hundred twenty-one years with at least twenty years of that time being mandatory, non-parole eligible time.  

 

Wicomico County State’s Attorney Matthew A. Maciarello commended the Wicomico County Narcotics Task Force and the Maryland State Police Gang Enforcement Unit for their work in the investigation and prosecution of this case.  Mr. Maciarello also thanked Patrizia J. Coletta who prosecuted Peters.
