BALTIMORE — The ATF Baltimore Field Division is asking for the public’s assistance in locating two men wanted for crimes related to their alleged roles in a Baltimore drug trafficking organization.

There is a reward of up to $5,000, each, for information leading to the arrest of Michael Reaves and Demetres Moore. The ATF announced on Thursday that Diontaye Demory, aka Grilla, is now in police custody and is making an initial appearance in federal court.

The other two are still actively being sought by ATF Baltimore Special Agents, and should be considered armed and dangerous. The ATF says they believe they are still located within Baltimore City, likely in East Baltimore.

Sixteen alleged members of this drug trafficking organization were indicted last week for numerous firearm and drug charges. ATF Special Agents and Baltimore County Task Force Officers subsequently served arrest warrants. These two defendants have not been taken into custody. All three have been charged with narcotics conspiracy and conspiracy to possess a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking. Michael Reaves has been charged with the additional crime of possession with intent to distribute crack.

“Our mission is to make the streets of Baltimore safer for law-abiding citizens. We are asking that the public help us in this effort,” said ATF Baltimore Special Agent in Charge Rob Cekada in a statement.

“Someone in the community knows where these defendants are or has information that could lead to their arrest. We urge them to contact law enforcement.”

Anyone with information should contact ATF at (888) ATF-TIPS, ATFtips@atf.gov, text “ATFBAL” to 63975, or contact ATF here.
