BALTIMORE, Md. (WBFF) -- Today, the Baltimore City State's Attorney's office, as well as other local law enforcement units in Maryland, held a joint press conference to announce a major drug bust and the indictment of several senior members of a drug trafficking organization operating out of Cherry Hill.

In 2016, the law enforcement agencies initiated a joint year-long investigation into the distribution of heroin and fentanyl throughout Baltimore City and Anne Arundel County.

Officials say Joseph Milligan, Marquise McElveen, Randie Howard, Travis Anderson, and Kereem Thompson, a New York resident, were indicted as a result of the investigation.

"The impetus for this investigation was the uptick in heroin and fentanyl related overdoses that were occurring in South Baltimore on the City/County line," said Major Investigations Unit (MIU) Chief Collins.

On October 30, 2017, Thompson attempted to make a heroin and fentanyl delivery to Milligan. Thompson's vehicle was intercepted and authorities recovered 167 grams of Heroin/Fentanyl mixed and packaged into a white plastic bag.

Investigators also found a separate plastic bag of 50 grams of Fentanyl.

On March 13, 2018, Milligan, McElveen, Howard, and Anderson were arrested in a drug bust. During the sweep, a firearm, 450 grams of heroin and fentanyl, as well as thousands of dollars in cash, were seized.

"Our local drug trade fuels violence and murder; so I count this takedown as another battle won against the scourge of unconscionable violence that we too often see on our city's streets," State's Attorney Mosby said.
