According to Robinson’s plea agreement, on February 6, 2018, co-defendant Stanley Rodgers took delivery of a bag containing 10 kilograms of heroin from two unidentified males in Howard County, Maryland. Rodgers returned to his residence and awaited the arrival of Robinson. A short time later, Robinson arrived at Rodgers’ residence, took the 10 kilograms of heroin, and drove to downtown Baltimore, where he was arrested by DEA agents. The 10 kilograms of heroin, which had a wholesale value of approximately $700,000, was recovered from Robinson’s vehicle.

On June 25, 2018, Rogers, 60, of Baltimore, was sentenced to 14 years in prison for his role in the conspiracy.
