FBI investigated and prosecuted case with assistance from Malden Police and State Police


A 22-year-old Malden man was sentenced this week in federal court in Boston for operating a drug trafficking enterprise in which he sold fentanyl, cocaine and cocaine base to an undercover officer on multiple occasions. Dhamari Jordan, a/k/a/ “DMO,” a/k/a “DMO Crashout,” was sentenced on Tuesday by U.S. District Court Judge Leo T. Sorokin to time served (approximately three years in prison) and five years of supervised release. In August 2021, Jordan pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute a controlled substance, one count of possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime and one count of conspiracy to possess firearms in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

Jordan and other members of his conspiracy were captured on recording selling fentanyl, cocaine and cocaine base to an undercover officer on three occasions in January 2021. During these sales, Jordan was on pretrial release for a pending firearms case in Cambridge District Court from June 2019.

Acting U.S. Attorney Joshua S. Levy; the FBI’s Acting Special Agent in Charge of the Boston Division, Christopher DiMenna; the Special Agent in Charge of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Boston Field Division, James M. Ferguson; and Interim Colonel of the Massachusetts State Police John E. Mawn, Jr., made the announcement on August 9. Valuable assistance was provided by the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office, Suffolk District Attorney’s Office, Boston Police Department and Malden Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Philip A. Mallard and Sarah Hoefle of the Organized Crime & Gang Unit prosecuted the case.
