A Fort Washington man has been sentenced to serve 10 years in federal prison followed by five years of supervised release for conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute phencyclidine (PCP), cocaine base and heroin and being a felon in possession of ammunition.

At the U.S. District Court in Greenbelt, U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein announced Friday that U.S. District Judge Roger W. Titus sentenced Wayne Glymph, 46, for his role as a drug trafficker.

According to Glymph’s guilty plea, beginning in January 2011, Glymph, co-defendant Samuel Braxton and other conspirators sold PCP, heroin and crack to drug customers in Prince George’s County and in throughout the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area.

Glymph and others used Braxton’s apartment and a bowling alley in Temple Hills to store and distribute narcotics. Glymph often pooled money with Braxton to obtain the drugs, which Glymph and Braxton then redistributed to their customers. Glymph was responsible for distributing between one and three kilograms of PCP, between 28 and 112 grams of crack, and between 400 and 700 grams of heroin, according to the plea agreement.

On Feb. 23, law enforcement agents executed a search warrant at Glymph’s residence and seized approximately 19 grams of heroin, 10 grams of crack, 25 grams of marijuana, a four-ounce bottle containing PCP residue, assorted drug paraphernalia, $23,626 and a diamond engagement ring.

Also seized during the search was a pouch containing two loaded 9 mm pistol magazines, six loaded .40 caliber pistol magazines, an empty .40 caliber pistol magazine, a shotgun shell and 11 .40 caliber cartridges.

Glymph had been previously convicted of a felony and was prohibited from possessing the guns and ammunition.

Braxton, also known as “Fats,” 44, of Temple Hills, previously pleaded guilty to his participation in the conspiracy and awaits sentencing.

A total of 10 defendants have pleaded guilty to date to charges arising from the drug conspiracy.
