Heroin Highway to Hell
SAVAGE BEHIND BARS
Cohort lassoed too on heroin distribution in Cherry Hill when cops tracked down bomb threat caller
BALTIMORE, MD. – What happens when a Savage runs loose on the streets of Maryland, free to deal heroin and make phone calls threatening a bomb will explode in a courthouse? The Maryland State Police have a crack team of investigators ready and able to decipher the bozo who made the phone call and that probe led to two arrests.
A Maryland State Police report that their investigation of a recent bomb threat led to an arrest of a Baltimore City man for his involvement in the threat of violence and heroin distribution.
The accused is identified as Ira Jamal Savage, 21, of 911 Leadenhall Street, Apt. 206, Baltimore, Md.
Savage was arrested March 1, 2018, by Maryland State Police on several criminal charges relating to a bomb threat called into the Glen Burnie District Courthouse including making a threat of mass violence. Savage was also charged with the possession and distribution of heroin. He is currently being held at Anne Arundel County Jail in Annapolis.
During the illegal drug investigation, Savage was accompanied by Michael Lamont Smith, 20, of 5201 Richard Ave., Baltimore, Md. Smith was also charged with the possession and distribution of heroin and transported to the Anne Arundel County Jail.
Shortly after 2:00 p.m. yesterday, the Glen Burnie District Courthouse received a phone call threatening the placement of a bomb in their building. The building was evacuated and thoroughly scanned by police, resulting in no evidence of the alleged bomb. The courthouse was later reopened.
TOO STUPID TO DITCH THE PHONE!
Cops: “Savage was also in possession of the telephone used to make the phone call to the Glen Burnie Courthouse. Both were arrested on scene without incident.”
State police investigators from the Criminal Enforcement Division Central South Region lead the investigation and located the alleged caller. During the investigation, police learned the alleged caller was involved in the distribution of heroin in the Cherry Hill area of Baltimore City, less than 600 feet from an elementary/middle school.
Investigators responded to the area and observed Savage and Smith with plastic sandwich bags containing heroin capsules. Savage was also in possession of the telephone used to make the phone call to the Glen Burnie Courthouse. Both were arrested on scene without incident.
Apparently, the public can’t expect Savage to use his alleged drug dealing proceeds to pay for his own attorney, thus, he will find out soon how great a defense he gets from a public defender.
Savage will have a taxpayer-provided free attorney to defend him in court on April 2, 2018. In the meantime, he is being held on charges of a false bomb threat, threat of mass violence and telephone misuse. Bond was set at $3,000. Apparently, the public can’t expect Savage to use his alleged drug dealing proceeds to pay for his own attorney, thus, he will find out soon how great a defense he gets from a public defender.
Smith was released from jail as free as a bird on March 2, 2018, when Randolph Smith posted his bail. Smith has no prior criminal record in Maryland but a couple of other Michael Lamont Smiths, with different ages, have so many real doozies on their records, that this younger version of an MLS might want to change his name to protect the allegedly guilty heroin dealer from other criminal records.
