Cousins Plead Guilty to Distributing PCP,
Sold Drugs in Clay Terrace Area in Northeast Washington

NOV 04 -- WASHINGTON – November 3, 2010 Monique Ware and her cousin, Gene Anderson, both 31, and both from Northeast Washington, have pled guilty to federal drug charges involving the sale of PCP, announced Ava A. Cooper-Davis, Special Agent in Charge of the Washington Division Office of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), U.S. Attorney Ronald C. Machen Jr., and Cathy L. Lanier, chief of the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD).

The two defendants pled guilty on Monday in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
Ware pled guilty to conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute PCP. Anderson pled guilty to distribution of PCP. The Honorable Judge Rosemary M. Collyer scheduled sentencing for January 18, 2011. Ware and Anderson are being held pending their sentencing.

Ware and Anderson lived in or near the Clay Terrace area in Washington, D.C. According to the government’s proffer of evidence at the plea hearing, from January 2006 until September 2008, Ware and others received large amounts of PCP from wholesalers in and around her home in the 300 block of 53rd Street NE. She paid large amounts of U.S. currency to her suppliers when she received shipments of PCP from wholesalers. Anderson was among those delivering the drugs.

The prosecution grew out of the efforts of the federal Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task
Force, a multi-agency team that conducts comprehensive, multi-level attacks on major drug trafficking and money laundering organizations. The principal mission of the nationwide program is to identify, disrupt, and dismantle the most serious drug trafficking and money laundering organizations and those primarily responsible for the nation’s drug supply.
