FPD investigation leads to crack cocaine possession and trafficking arrest

THE CITY OF FREDERICK (7)

In March 2021, members of the Frederick Police Department’s Tactical Investigations Unit (TIU) assigned to the Baltimore / Washington High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) Task Force, began an investigation into an individual identified as Brandon Deon Muse. Information obtained during the course of this investigation indicated that Muse was actively involved in the illegal trafficking and later distribution of several different types of controlled dangerous substances (CDS) including, cocaine and crack cocaine throughout the area of Frederick County, Maryland.  

Detective Chiaravalloti worked with the Frederick County States Attorney’s Office, and the Leesburg Police Department to obtain search and seizure warrants for Muse vehicle and residence. Muse was placed under arrest after traveling from Leesburg, Va. into Frederick and transported to the Frederick County Adult Detention Center where he was subsequently held without bond.

Brandon Deon Muse (DOB 1/17/1992)

28-6 Fort Evans Rd NE Apt.204

Leesburg, VA 20176

This investigation was a coordinated effort between the Frederick Police Department, the Frederick County States Attorney’s Office, the Frederick County Sherriff’s Office, Leesburg Police Department and Homeland Security Investigations under the Maryland Criminal Intelligence Network (MCIN). The Governor’s Office of Crime Prevention, Youth, and Victim Services (GOCPYVS) provides grant funding and strategic support to MCIN member sites to identify, disrupt, and dismantle criminal organizations through inter-agency collaboration and data sharing to make Maryland safer. In 2021, FPD’s work with MCIN has resulted in more than a dozen arrests of violent criminals and individuals heavily involved in drug networks. This integral partnership and associated funding has been invaluable to the Frederick Police Department’s ability to arrest some of the most dangerous bad actors in Frederick, many of whom are repeat offenders. This initiative and the associated arrests are directly responsible in making Frederick a safer city for its residents.

The Maryland Criminal Information Network (MCIN) provides funding to the Frederick Police Department for personnel such as a Crime Analyst and a Heroin Coordinator, who tracks and assists overdose victims in connecting to various resources. Additionally the MCIN grant provides overtime funding for larger investigations that involve regional Law Enforcement Partners such as the Frederick County Sheriffs Office, Thurmont Police Department and Brunswick Police Department.

The Governor’s Office of Crime Prevention, Youth, and Victim Services (GOCPYVS) funded this project under sub award number MCIN-2022-0014. All points of view in this document are those of the author and do not necessarily represent the official position of any Maryland State office or agency.
