BALTIMORE — A fugitive wanted since September 2016 was arrested by U.S. Marshals in Baltimore County.

Deaven Raeshawn Cherry, a fugitive wanted by the ATF Baltimore Field Division since September 2016, was arrested by U.S. Marshals without incident in Baltimore County Wednesday morning.

Cherry is federally charged with multiple crimes related to his alleged role in a violent drug distribution conspiracy known as the Hillside Enterprise, which operated for 14 years in the Cherry Hill neighborhood of Baltimore.

The indictment specifically alleges that Cherry was involved in the murder of two people. Incidents of attempted murders and aggravated assaults are also alleged against him.

The 19 co-defendants in this case have all pleaded guilty and been convicted of charges related to their roles in the Hillside Enterprise gang.

Of those 19 co-defendants, 18 of them have been sentenced to between 10 to 30 years in federal prison. The last co-defendant sentenced was Keenan Lawson in August 2019.
