The indictment alleges the couple conspired to distribute fentanyl from May 2018 to September 25, 2020. On September 25, law enforcement officers found Trimmer living in a hotel near the Bowie Towne Center and tried to arrest him. After they identified themselves as law enforcement, Trimmer, who the officers found sitting in his vehicle at the hotel, fled.
According to the indictment, Trimmer assaulted a federal law enforcement officer and resisted arrest even after being tased. He was eventually arrested at a nearby fast-food restaurant.
Trimmer and Walls are also accused of distributing fentanyl that resulted in two overdoses. One overdose happened in May 2018 and the other in October 2020, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.
