BALTIMORE, MD—A Rosedale man has pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute controlled substances.

The guilty plea by Rajeim Ali Bradshaw, 49, was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Erek L. Barron; Acting Special Agent in Charge Selwyn Smith of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Baltimore; and Chief Melissa R. Hyatt of the Baltimore County Police Department.

On June 20, 2019, Baltimore County Police Department officers executed a search warrant at Bradshaw’s residence. As a result of the executed search and seizure warrant, officers located approximately 5.5 kilograms of fentanyl, one kilogram of heroin, and a significant amount of drug manufacturing, packaging, and distribution paraphernalia including respirator masks which are commonly worn by individuals during the packaging of fentanyl.

Law enforcement was also able to obtain Bradshaw’s DNA from one of the respirator masks found in his home. Additionally, officers located a series of drug-related messages including a text message in which Bradshaw stated that he was “still working” accompanied by a picture of Bradshaw in a respirator mask.

In addition to the drugs and paraphernalia seized at Bradshaw’s residence, law enforcement also recovered a .40 caliber pistol, a rifle, and $48,433 in cash from Bradshaw’s bedroom. Bradshaw admits that he possessed the firearms in furtherance of his drug trafficking activities and that he possessed the heroin and fentanyl with intent to distribute the drugs.

Bradshaw and the government have agreed that, if the court accepts the plea agreement, he will be sentenced to 136 months in federal prison.

U.S. District Judge Deborah K. Chasanow has scheduled sentencing for July 29, 2022, at 9:30 a.m.
