DCRA Employee Arrested For Selling Drugs Outside His Workplace

The FBI has arrested and charged a D.C. Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs employee with dealing fentanyl outside of the Southwest building.

Yesterday, Program Support Specialist Darrell Pope of Prince George’s County was charged with conspiracy to distribute at least 40 grams of fentanyl mixture. Pope and his wife who also works for DCRA have both been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.

The FBI and Prince William County police have been investigating Pope for the last 6 months. It’s believed he is apart of a larger group of heroin and fentanyl dealers based out of Woodbridge, Virginia.

Agents say in one transaction during the sting they purchased 87 grams of heroin/fentanyl a total value of over $8,000. A search of his home in Clinton, Maryland uncovered additional drugs, scale and three firearms.

A second man identified as his supplier Ronald Gorham was also taken into custody and charged.

Both men are being held until their next court date which is on Friday.
