Woman, Son Sentenced To Federal Prison For Selling Drugs From Their Baltimore Home

Woman, Son Sentenced To Federal Prison For Selling Drugs From Their Baltimore Home Porsche Cruz admitted that from May through June 2018, she conspired with others to distribute 270 grams of fentanyl- enough to kill 13,500 people- and more than one kilogram of cocaine in Baltimore. Chardon helped his mother distribute the narcotics and collect money from the sales. Police searched the Cruzes’ home on May 25 and June 12, 2018 and found a loaded shotgun, a loaded pistol, three rifles, another shotgun, a box of 12 gauge shotgun shells and other loose ammunition. They also recovered a total of 52 plastic twist bags with 2.16 grams of cocaine and 243 gel caps with 23.49 grams of fentanyl in the home.

Detectives of the Bangor Police Criminal Investigation Division have been working the case for almost a year and say a post-mortem examination showed the cause of death was probable toxic effects of fentanyl.

Nelligan, 33, is being charged with endangering the welfare of a child. Nelligan was arrested by detectives Tuesday morning and is being charged with additional charges because at the time of her arrest she had drugs on her person.

Nelligan was taken to the Penobscot County Jail where she is currently being held without bail.

Police say this investigation is ongoing.
