CAMBRIDGE — State’s Attorney for Dorchester County William H. Jones announced on Oct. 14 that Tramaine Thomas had been sentenced by Dorchester County Circuit Court Judge Brett W. Wilson to 25 years in prison, with no parole eligibility during the first five years.
The sentence was passed down on Sept. 13. It followed a two-day trial on Aug. 17 and 18, in which a jury convicted Thomas of possession with intent to distribute Fentanyl, possession of a firearm in relation to a drug trafficking crime, and possession of body armor.
The case was the result of an investigation by the Dorchester County Narcotics Task Force. During the probe, police seized 41 grams of Fentanyl, a 9mm handgun, and body armor.
The Task Force consists of the Maryland State Police, the Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office, the Cambridge Police Department, the Hurlock Police Department, and the Office of the State’s Attorney for Dorchester County. The case was prosecuted by Senior Assistant State’s Attorney Ella Disharoon.
This investigation was a coordinated effort among the Dorchester County Task Force and Governor Larry Hogan’s Maryland Criminal Intelligence Network initiative. The Governor’s Office of Crime Prevention, Youth, and Victim Services provides grant funding and strategic support to MCIN member sites to identify, disrupt and dismantle criminal organizations through interagency collaboration and data sharing to make Maryland safer.
