Three Maryland men indicted on charges of trafficking fentanyl provided by Mexican cartel

Three Maryland men have been indicted in connection with an alleged conspiracy to distribute the powerful opioid fentanyl provided by a Mexican cartel, the U.S. attorney’s office said Thursday.

Nevone McCrimmon, 47, of Edgewood; William Elijah, 51, of Baltimore; and Terrance Mobley, 50, of Baltimore are charged with an alleged conspiracy to distribute more than 400 grams of fentanyl.

Law enforcement officials allege the men were high-ranking members of a Baltimore-based drug trafficking organization that imports and distributes heroin, opioids and other drugs, the U.S. attorney’s office said in a news release.

Starting in fall 2017, officials said, the men regularly purchased drugs by the kilogram from a Miami-based drug trafficking organization, which had ties to Sinaloa and Tijuana Mexican drug cartels, the release states.

As little as two milligrams of fentanyl can be a lethal dose, and the 20 kilograms of fentanyl seized in this case to date is enough to kill 10 million people — more than one and a half times the population of Maryland,” Maryland U.S. Attorney Robert K. Hur said in the release.
