Man charged with selling drugs out of parking lot of Hampden bar

A Baltimore man was charged with selling about $1,400 worth of cocaine and buying a gun from an undercover officer in the parking lot of the Hampden bar Dimitri’s Tavern, according to federal court records filed Thursday.

Scott McCotter was charged with distribution and possession with intent to distribute cocaine, in addition to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He did not have an attorney listed in court records.

A Baltimore police officer on an FBI task force working undercover met McCotter and on several occasions in August and September, court records said. During those meetings, McCotter was sitting in a black BMW in the parking lot of the Falls Road bar when he met the officer.

In September, the officer sold a Glock 23 gun to McCotter for $300, court records said.

Someone who answered the phone at Dimitri’s said the owner would not return until next week and could not comment.
