Wes Adams, Anne Arundel County State’s Attorney

Anne Arundel County State’s Attorney Wes Adams announced that two heroin dealers are off of Anne Arundel County streets. Both defendants were sentenced this week in the Anne Arundel County Circuit Court.

“Heroin dealers are a clear and present enemy to our children, our citizens, and our safe streets; we are committed to combating this epidemic one dealer at a time.” said Anne Arundel County State’s Attorney Wes Adams. “I want to thank all of the government agencies involved in holding these heroin dealers accountable, as these cases in particular employed a large inter-agency team effort.”

In the first case, Gregory Harper, 37, from Brooklyn Park, received a 25 year sentence with all but 15 years suspended – 10 without the possibility of parole. In handing down this sentence, Judge Paul Harris stated that the defendant was a “business man, and is in the business of dealing poison.”  Harper has numerous prior felonies, including a firearms conviction. Police recovered 50 gel caps of heroin and approximately $3,000 cash from his arrest.

“We continue to seek the strongest penalties possible for repeat drug dealers,” said Adams.  “I appreciate Judge Harris recognizing the menace that this defendant presents to Anne Arundel County residents.”

In the second case, Brian Grimm, 29, from Baltimore, received a 15 year sentence, the maximum allowed under his plea agreement, from Judge J. Michael Wachs. Grimm was pulled over on I-295 driving a car with out-of-State tags. Officers discovered a kilogram of heroin concealed in the car after a canine scan by the Maryland Transportation Authority Police. HIDTA and the Drug Enforcement Agency were also involved in the case.

“My office will not tolerate people importing heroin into our community.” said Adams. “Restricting the supply of drugs entering the county is an essential step in the fight against heroin.”
