Davon Brown sentenced to 10 years for crack cocaine/firearms charges

U.S. District Judge J. Frederick Motz sentenced Davon Brown, age
28, of Baltimore, Maryland, today to 10 years in prison, followed by
five years of supervised release for possession with intent to
distribute crack cocaine and possession of a firearm in furtherance
of a drug trafficking crime, announced United States Attorney for the
District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein.

According to the plea agreement, on December 8, 2006, Davon
Brown, was arrested after a lengthy investigation of his involvement
in the distribution of drugs in the Edmondson Village area of
Baltimore City. The investigation included, among other things,
controlled purchases of crack cocaine made from Brown and a
wiretap investigation on Brown’s cellular telephone. At the time of his
arrest, a search warrant was also executed at the home Brown
shared with his girlfriend in the 300 block of East Lorraine Avenue in
Baltimore. Officers recovered drug packaging material; over 30
grams of crack cocaine; gel caps of heroin packaged for street sale;
a loaded P380 firearm; and over $4000 in the master bedroom of
the home.

United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein recognized Baltimore City
State’s Attorney Patricia C. Jessamy and Assistant State’s Attorneys Tony Gioia, Melissa Copeland and Michael Studdard, for their assistance in this state and federal wiretap investigation and related prosecutions.

U.S. Attorney Rosenstein also thanked the Baltimore City Police
Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and
Explosives for their investigative work and commended Assistant
United States Attorneys James T. Wallner and Michael C. Hanlon,
who prosecuted the case.
