Baltimore Drug Trafficker Sentenced to 15 Years in Prison

Supplied Cocaine to Co-Conspirators Who Operated a Southwest Baltimore Drug Shop

Baltimore, Maryland – U.S. District Judge George L. Russell III sentenced Mario Lamar Wair, a/k/a “Unda,” age 42, of Baltimore, today to 15 years in prison, followed by five years of supervised release, for conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute cocaine and crack cocaine; and for possession with intent to distribute cocaine and crack cocaine. During the course of the sentencing hearing, Judge Russell found that Wair obstructed justice by falsely testifying at trial. A federal jury convicted Wair on November 5, 2015.

The sentence was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein; Special Agent in Charge Kevin Perkins of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Baltimore Field Office; Commissioner Kevin Davis of the Baltimore Police Department; and Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby.

According to evidence presented at his four day trial, from no later than June 2013 through June 2014, Wair conspired with others to distribute cocaine and crack cocaine in southwest Baltimore. Kareem Moore, Raymond Comegys, Stephon Lowery and other co-defendants operated a street-level drug shop in the southwest area of Baltimore City that sold crack cocaine daily to customers. Trial evidence showed that two to three times per week Wair supplied cocaine to a co-defendant who cooked the cocaine into crack cocaine. The crack cocaine was then sold to other distributors and in user-quantity amounts to street level customers. Wair either was present when the cocaine was cooked into crack cocaine or would call to check in on the quality of the crack cocaine.

According to the trial evidence, Wair distributed more than two kilograms of cocaine and crack cocaine.

All nine defendants charged in this indictment have been convicted for their participation in the conspiracy. Raymond Comegys, age 31, of Baltimore, and Stephon Lowery, age 30, of Baltimore, were sentenced to 12 years and 10 years in prison, respectively. Kareem Moore pleaded guilty before trial and was sentenced to 66 months in prison, and five other co-defendants have received sentences of between 30 and 78 months.

United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein commended the FBI, Baltimore Police Department and Baltimore City State’s Attorney’s Office for their work in the investigation. Mr. Rosenstein thanked Assistant United States Attorneys Seema Mittal and Leo J. Wise, who prosecuted the case.
