Maryland Inmate Due In Court On Drone Contraband Charges

March 15th, 2016 by WCBC Radio

A state prison inmate has a court date in Cumberland on charges he conspired with two men on the outside in an attempt to bring drugs, pornographic videos and other contraband into the maximum-security Western Correctional Institution.

The status hearing Tuesday for 43-year-old Charles Brooks comes one day before his scheduled trial. He faces 33 misdemeanor counts that could add 99 years to his sentence.

He’s currently serving a life term for conspiracy to commit murder in Prince George’s County in 2002.

Investigators say Brooks was in a dog-training program that enabled him to walk his dog outside his housing unit alone at night. They say he used the trips to retrieve contraband.

The two other men have been convicted of attempting to fly contraband into the prison in August.
