WASHINGTON — A Randallstown, Maryland, man has admitted to transporting boxes of drugs from the Baltimore area to the D.C. area as part of a plea deal with prosecutors.
Anthony Renard Wynn, 47, also acknowledged trying to conceal drug proceeds as casino winnings.
In the deal, Wynn agreed to plead guilty to conspiracy to distribute and possess with the intent to distribute 1 kilogram or more of heroin and 400 grams or more of fentanyl.
Investigators said Wynn would receive packages containing drugs from an animal hospital in Pikesville, Maryland. He would store the drugs in a barbershop near the hospital and at a storage unit.
Court records said he transported the drugs to Southeast D.C.
Detectives also discovered that Wynn laundered drug proceeds at casinos in Maryland.
Even though Wynn only earned $30,000 in 2016, he is accused of cashing-in and cashing-out close to $1 million in 2016 and 2017.
Wynn was arrested during a traffic stop in June 2017, when police found a 1 kilogram brick of heroin worth more than $11,000. Police also found a digital scale and two $500 casino chips in his car.
After serving a search warrant at Wynn’s home and storage unit, investigators found approximately 1 kilogram of fentanyl, 3 kilograms of heroin, an electronic money counter, $16,000 in cash and more than $5,000 with an “owe sheet.”
Wynn is also accused of shipping packages to a co-conspirator in California, according to prosecutors. One of those packages contained $244,040 in drug proceeds.
Wynn will be sentenced in July and faces up to life in prison, with a minimum mandatory sentence of 10 years behind bars.
