Annapolis Man, 64, Gets Sentenced in Federal Court Following Guilty Plea to Drug Trafficking Charges

A 64-year old Annapolis man has been sentenced to time in federal prison after reportedly entering a guilty plea to drug trafficking charges.  

The US Attorney's Office in Baltimore said Federal District Judge James K. Bredar sentenced Keith L. Brown (shown above), to 10 years in federal prison for possession with intent to distribute phencyclidine, crack, heroin, and cocaine.  

Brown’s son and co-defendant, Khayr Basimibnbrown (shown below), age 42, also of Annapolis, previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute fentanyl, heroin, PCP, and cocaine.  He was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison by Chief Judge Bredar in August 2022.

According to federal prosecutors, Keith Brown was observed conducting narcotics transactions in which customers routinely stood in lines outside of a Monroe Street-Annapolis residence before his arrival.

"On January 13, 2022, law enforcement executed a search and seizure warrants at eight residences in Annapolis, including Brown’s residence where officers seized 47 grams of PCP, 55.5 grams of crack cocaine, 6.2 grams of heroin, and 71 grams of cocaine," officials said in a press release. "On the same day, law enforcement executed a search and seizure warrant at another residence in Annapolis.  After executing the warrant, law enforcement found 145.05 grams of cocaine, 67.19 grams of PCP, and 59.56 grams of a cutting agent within a child’s closet.  In total, law enforcement seized $32,695 in cash as well as a firearm."

United States Attorney Erek L. Barron commended the FBI, DEA, the Annapolis Police Department, and the Anne Arundel County State’s Attorney’s Office for their work in the investigation.
