BALTIMORE — Timothy Floyd, a.k.a. "Tim Rod," 28, has been sentenced to 30 years in federal prison for federal racketeering and drug conspiracies, the Department of Justice announced Monday.

According to the sentencing, he participated in a violent racketeering enterprise known as Trained To Go (TTG). The racketeering conspiracy included eight murders, as well as drug trafficking and witness intimidation.

Floyd and his co-defendants were also convicted of a drug distribution conspiracy involving heroin, marijuana, and cocaine.

According to evidence presented at the trial, Floyd and his co-defendants sold heroin, cocaine and marijuana and worked to defend their exclusive right to control who sold narcotics in their territory.

Floyd served as one of TTG’s primary distributors of heroin and marijuana, routinely selling “packs” of heroin and gram quantities of marijuana from multiple locations. In addition, the evidence proved that between May 20, 2010 and Jan. 9, 2017, Floyd and other members of TTG committed murders, shootings, armed robbery, and witness intimidation.

The leader of the gang, 23-year-old Montana Barronette, a.k.a "Tana" and "Tanner," and his brother, 27-year-old Terrell Sivells, a.k.a. "Rell," were each sentenced to life in prison on February 15 and April 26, 2019, respectively.

Co-defendants Brandon Wilson, a.k.a "Ali," 24, and 30-year-old Taurus Tillman, a.k.a. "Tash," were each sentenced to 25 years in prison on March 1 and May 21, 2019, respectively.

Two other co-defendants, 28-year-old John Harrison, a.k.a. "Binkie," and 25-year-old Linton Broughton, a.k.a. "Marty," were sentenced to life in prison and to 30 years in prison, respectively, on March 15, 2019. Three other TTG members previously pleaded guilty and were sentenced to between five and 25 years in prison.

Dennis Pulley, a.k.a. "Denmo," of Baltimore, is the final defendant convicted at the trial who is awaiting sentencing. He faces a maximum sentence of life in prison on the racketeering and drug conspiracies.

Another defendant, 28-year-old Roger Taylor, a.k.a. "Milk," of Baltimore, a fugitive since July 2017, was arrested on June 30, 2019, and is now awaiting trial.
