The sentence was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein; Acting Chief of Police Robert Maclean of the U.S. Park Police; Special Agent in Charge Steven L. Gerido of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives - Baltimore Field Division; Special Agent in Charge Karl C.

According to his plea agreement, from April 14, 2011 to January 30, 2012 ATF and U.S. Park Police agents made eight controlled purchases of cocaine base from Anderson totaling 308.8 grams.
