FBI agents investigating a drug operation raided a D.C. government office Tuesday and found fentanyl at a workspace, according to court documents.
Darrell Marcellus Pope and his wife are on leave from the D.C. Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs.
Undercover agents caught Pope selling thousands of dollars of fentanyl and heroin, often times outside his government office just a few feet from an elementary school, according to court documents. The drug ring stretched from Woodbridge, Virginia, to D.C. to Pope’s Clinton, Maryland, home.
FBI agents found an ounce of the deadly drugs at Pope’s home and also found fentanyl at his workspace inside DCRA headquarters, where Pope was arrested. When he was taken into custody, Pope had 30 grams of fentanyl on him.
