BALTIMORE, Md. -
Twenty-nine year-old Tereek Nutter, of Salisbury, was sentenced Tuesday to more than 12 years in prison after accepting a plea agreement in U.S. District Court for conspiring to distribute more than five kilograms of cocaine and a quantity of cocaine base.
According to his plea agreement with federal prosecutors, Nutter conspired with others to distribute cocaine and cocaine base. From May to June 2011, law enforcement overheard phone conversations in which Nutter arranged for several purchases of up to a kilogram of cocaine at a time from a conspirator. Nutter agreed to pay up to $35,000 for each kilogram of cocaine.
On June 29th of last year, law enforcement executed a search warrant at Nutter's home and seized $3,800; a loaded, stolen firearm; ammunition; 10.8 grams of cocaine base; and 1.8 grams of cocaine. Law enforcement arrested Nutter on September 9th, at another residence in Salisbury and seized over 300 grams of cocaine, a scale, a loaded firearm and $3,000 from that residence.
Nutter admits that he and his conspirators distributed more than five kilograms of cocaine and a quantity of cocaine base.
