BALTIMORE — Baltimore City law enforcement officials on Tuesday announced indictments against seven members of the "One Way" Drug Trafficking Organization.

Led by Javahn Wilson and Richard Cooper, the group allegedly trafficked fentanyl and cocaine throughout West Baltimore, between April and September of this year.

Though the group primarily sold in the 1800 block of W. Lombard Street, prosecutors allege they cut and stashed drugs out of homes in the 800 and 1800 blocks of Fairmount Avenue and the 1700 block of Lemmon Street.

Out of those houses, investigators seized $22,000 cash, 100 grams of suspected cocaine, 1,050 gel caps and 7 bags of suspected fentanyl, and 1,700 grams of other suspected drugs.

Two vehicles, various cutting agents and paraphernalia were also recovered.

The group now faces a combined 30 charges and maximum 480 years in prison if convicted.

The investigation was funded by the Governor’s Office of Crime Prevention, Youth, and Victim Services.
