West Baltimore — Timika Jones pled guilty to Possession of Heroin with the Intent to Distribute. Assistant State’s Attorney (ASA) StacyAnn Llewelyn, Chief of the Public Trust and Police Integrity Unit, prosecuted the case.
On November 16, 2016, Baltimore Police detectives executed a search and seizure warrant on a residence in the 1600-block of Ashburton Street. Timika Jones and her co-defendant, Clarence Jones, were found in the basement bedroom. During the search, the police recovered two handguns—one of which was reported stolen from Baltimore Count; a gel cap machine; CDS and paraphernalia; as well as more than $156,000.
Additionally, during the search, police identified two vehicles parked on the street that belonged to Ms. Jones. A K-9 scan indicated that there was CDS inside the vehicles. After searching both vehicles, 125 gel caps of heroin were recovered from one of the vehicles, which was being rented by Ms. Jones.
At the time of the incident, Ms. Jones was a Crime Lab Technician for the Baltimore Police Department (BPD).
“As the chief prosecutor for Baltimore City, I took an oath to uphold justice and treat every individual within the jurisdiction of Baltimore City equally and fairly under the law,” said State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby. “As my administration works to safeguard communities through the effective prosecution of crime, we are uncompromisingly committed to restoring community confidence in law enforcement by creating a fair and equitable justice system for all— regardless of age, race, color, creed, or occupation.”
On behalf of the State, ASA Llewelyn recommended a sentence of five years—suspend all but one year—with three years of supervised probation and the requirement that Ms. Jones resign from BPD within 30 days.
The court imposed a sentence of five years suspended sentence with three years probation.
Ms. Jones submitted her resignation today.
