Heroin conspiracy lands man 13-year sentence

A 46-year-old man from Middle River was sentenced to 13 years in prison for heroin distribution, the United States Attorney's Office in Baltimore said Wednesday.

Lindell Robinson pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute heroin. After serving his 13-year term, he will fulfill five years of supervised release and must forfeit his vehicle and $16,000 found during the investigation of his crimes.

According to his plea, Stanley Rodgers, a co-defendant in Robinson's case, was delivered 10 kilograms of heroin from two unidentified men from Howard County. Rodgers took the heroin to his home and awaited Robinson, who arrived a short time later and took the heroin into downtown Baltimore.

Robinson was then arrested by DEA agents in Baltimore, who recovered the 10 kilos. 

On June 25, Rodgers was sentenced to 14 years in prison for his role in the conspiracy.
