Newark Man Pleads Guilty to Selling Methamphetamine, Fentanyl, and Heroin

court news

WILMINGTON, DE — David C. Weiss, U.S. Attorney for the District of Delaware, announced that a Newark man pleaded guilty on May 24, 2022, in U.S. District Court to conspiring to sell various illicit drugs. Chief U.S. District Judge Colm F. Connolly accepted the plea.

According to court documents, Malik Moss, known as “Bleek,” 37, worked with known co-conspirators, who have not yet entered guilty pleas, to sell methamphetamine, fentanyl, and heroin to various buyers in New Castle County, Delaware.  The Drug Enforcement Administration learned about Moss’s drug dealing, in part, through court-approved monitoring of his phone calls and text messages for several months in late 2021.

Moss pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute controlled substances and faces a mandatory minimum of 10 years and maximum of life in prison. Chief Judge Connolly will determine his sentence after taking into account the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

“The widespread impact of drug distribution is incalculable,” stated U.S. Attorney Weiss. “Working with our federal, state and local law enforcement partners, we will continue to apply the rule of law to stop the flow of dangerous substances into our communities.”
