Local Walter White Goes Down

A drug kingpin by the name of Paul Alexander has been convicted. This 47-year-old man is accused of selling fentanyl. Fentanyl is an addictive opioid that is capable of causing death. Alexander AKA “Shorty” had 10 kilos of fentanyl in his possession. This amount of the deadly drug could have killed up to 5 million people. Law enforcement searched Alexander and found $4 million in cash, jewelry, fentanyl, and a loaded gun. This is very interesting because this man is from Anne Arundel County. Yes, Anne Arundel County has its own Walter White.
Fentanyl, as well as other opioids, causes the most overdoses in the United States. You might think that this stat is inflated by the heavy “contributions” of other opioids, but fentanyl is involved in 59.8% of option-related deaths. This stat was taken in 2017, and in 2010 it was at 14.3%. U.S. Attorney Robert K. Hur said, “More people die of opioid overdoses than murder in Maryland, while drug dealers spend their profits on luxury cars and jewelry. Fentanyl dealers, like Paul Alexander, sell death and despair, and dealing in fentanyl increases their odds of federal prosecution.” Shorty now faces multiple life sentences for his “successful business.” His sentencing will be held in January of 2020.
