Two New Scandals at a Second Maryland Prison

Bloods Gang/Drug Activity Run Partially From Baltimore Prison

18 suspected members of the Bloods gang have been indicted by a federal grand jury for racketeering, drug related crimes. The case revolves around an investigation that began with a separate federal indictment of Michael Dominique Johnson, who is from Columbia, MD in Howard County.

The investigators began to monitor his communications from the Chesapeake Detention Center. The federally owned prison is run by the State of Maryland, and just happens to be located across the street from the Baltimore City Detention Center that had 13 correctional officers indicted in a major scandal in April.

This story is developing.

In other news at the Chesapeake Detention Center, a male correctional officer, Sgt. Nathan Colbert, has been charged of sexually assaulting a female inmate in front of two witnesses. A review of the court documents shows that the alleged assault occurred on July 7, 2012. Sgt. Colbert, 49, has been charged with 2nd degree assault, a 4th degree sex offense, and a correctional inmate sex offense. The trial is set for July 15, 2013.

FoxBaltimore reports that Sgt. Colbert placed his hand under her shorts and assaulted her, and she immediately pushed him away.
