Nine people were indicted by the feds in connection with a cocaine ring that spanned from Houston to Baltimore, U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein. About 50 kilos of coke and a full fleet of sports cars and a 16-carat diamond ring were seized in connection with the bust. To stash the cash, the “Jennifer” ring used their small business savvy.
According to the feds, alleged ring leader Kedrick Arnold Jenifer owned World Fed Apparel, a clothing line based in West Baltimore. He also owned a stake in Flavor Factory, LLC. According to the Baltimore Sun, that business owns a Rita’s Italian Ice in Fells Point, where Jenifer hid money. He also dropped some of the loot at RCH Plaza on West Baltimore St.
A total of nine people were indicted for their involvement in the ring, all of whom have been arrested. Along with fancy stuff and businesses, the indictment also connects the ring to violence on Baltimore streets. In September, 2012, Jenifer posted bond for a man named John Moore, who was arrested with 30 kilos of cocaine near Houston. Moore was killed a month later in Baltimore, and the feds believe the murder is connected to his arrest.
