FREDERICK – Tracy Frost, 46, of Frederick, MD appeared for sentencing today in the Circuit Court for Frederick County, Maryland for the charges of conspiracy to distribute heroin and distribution of heroin. The Honorable Julie R. Stevenson Solt, concurring with the State’s recommended sentence, ordered Mr. Frost to serve 40 years of incarceration in the Division of Correction, suspending 15 years, thus making the term of active incarceration 25 years. Upon release, Mr. Frost will be placed on 5 years of supervised probation.
On September 28, 2017, the Frederick Police Department responded to a residence on East Second Street in downtown Frederick for a suspected fatal drug overdose. The scene indicated that the male victim had ingested heroin. A subsequent autopsy revealed that he had died of a mixed drug intoxication, including heroin and fentanyl. The Frederick Police Department’s Drug Enforcement Unit opened an investigation into the matter. Investigators were able to confirm that Tracy Frost of Frederick and Antonio Little of Frederick, had conspired to supply heroin to the victim the night before. A detective subsequently made contact with Mr. Little and Mr. Frost and, acting in an undercover capacity, purchased heroin directly from Mr. Frost on October 5, 2017.
On June 27, 2018, Mr. Frost plead guilty to two counts, conspiracy to distribute heroin and distribution of heroin, regarding his conduct in both incidents. Mr. Little entered an Alford plea of guilt to distribution of heroin in July. Mr. Little will appear for sentencing before the Honorable William R. Nicklas later this month.
The State was represented by Assistant State’s Attorney Colleen K. Swanson.
