BALTIMORE, Md. - Timothy Lee Dennison, 22, was sentenced to 15 years in prison followed by five years of supervised release for conspiring to distribute five kilograms or more of cocaine.
The sentence announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein and Special Agent in Charge William Winter of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations.
According to Dennison's guilty plea, on November 10, 2011 Louisiana State Police seized approximately five kilograms of cocaine from a vehicle driven by co-defendant Daniel Bois in Louisiana, who was driving the cocaine from Texas to its destination of Baltimore. After arresting Bois and seizing the cocaine, law enforcement continued its investigation into the cocaine organization based in Baltimore and conducted a controlled delivery of cocaine the following day. The cocaine was replaced with "sham cocaine" and delivered to 3501 8th Avenue in Baltimore, where Dennison and co-defendant Anthony Taylor accessed the vehicle where law enforcement had concealed the sham cocaine. Law enforcement subsequently arrested Dennison and Taylor.
Further investigation revealed that members of the cocaine organization had made several trips between Baltimore and Texas in the past year to transport several additional kilograms of cocaine for distribution in the Baltimore area. In all, Dennison conspired to distribute between five and 15 kilograms of cocaine.
Daniel Bois, age 26, and Anthony Fraser Taylor, age 29, both of Baltimore, and two other co-defendants pleaded guilty to their participation in the conspiracy, and await sentencing.
