Maryland man sentenced to 10 years in prison for drug trafficking

BALTIMORE – Myron Derrell Allen, 31, of Greensboro, Md., was sentenced July 19 to 10 years in prison followed by five years of supervised release following an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), Trappe Police Department and the Maryland State Police.

Allen was sentenced by U.S. District Judge James K. Bredar for possession with intent to distribute cocaine base (crack).

According to his guilty plea, on Aug. 10, 2011, a Talbot County Sheriff's officer found Allen in a vehicle stopped on Old Trappe Road in Trappe, Md., with its flashers on. The officer smelled marijuana emanating from the vehicle and from Allen. Allen was unable to perform sobriety tests. The officer arrested Allen for driving while impaired, searched the vehicle and seized 529 grams of cocaine base from the vehicle.

The case was prosecuted by Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Kenneth S. Clark and Assistant U.S. Attorney Christopher J. Romano.
