62-Year-Old Man Arrested in Reservoir Hill with Spray Bottles of Fentanyl ‘in Plain View’


By Ethan McLeod, Baltimore Fishbowl

Acting on an anonymous tip yesterday afternoon, city police arrested a 62-year-old local who they say was equipped with numerous guns, knives, handcuffs and a half-dozen bottles of hospital-grade fentanyl.

Officers got word of their suspect, 62-year-old Wendell Beard, around 4 p.m. They found him in his car in the 2200 block of Linden Avenue in Reservoir Hill.

“In plain view,” police said, were six packaged bottles of sprayable hospital-grade fentanyl, a drug that’s 30 to 50 times more potent than heroin, according to the DEA. (For what it’s worth, police department spokesman Det. Donny Moses said in an email that hospital-grade “is a weak dosage” and “not very strong” compared to other forms of the drug.)
