A Baltimore man was sentenced April 4 to 15 years in prison for illegally possessing a firearm and ammunition, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland announced.

Derrick Woodlon, 34, of Baltimore will also face three years of supervised release following his prison term. Woodlon has nine previous felony drug convictions.

According to Woodlon’s plea agreement, Baltimore City police officers observed him operating a “drug shop” in the 1000 block of Boyd Street through late 2011.

In November of that year, police executed a search warrant at a location on North Woodington Avenue, and recovered three loaded .357 caliber handguns, one of which had been reported stolen a year earlier. Officers also recovered 26 grams of crack cocaine, 44 grams of heroin, drug paraphernalia and approximately $26,000 in cash, according to U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein.
