A 36-year-old Baltimore cocaine dealer was sentenced to 12 years in federal prison Friday, the Maryland U.S. Attorney's Office announced.
Antionio Liburd was also ordered to forfeit a semi-automatic handgun and more than $13,000 seized from his home this spring. U.S. District Court Judge Ellen L. Hollander enhanced his sentence after finding that Liburd was a "career offender," with at least four prior drug convictions, the prosecutors' office said.
Baltimore police said they found more than 150 baggies of cocaine, containing 20.5 grams of the drug, inside Liburd's truck, and eight more grams hidden in his pants, during a search performed in March. The cash was found inside Liburd's home on Wilmont Court, along with three grams of cocaine, the gun and drug paraphernalia, according to prosecutors.
