Story | Jul 15, 2014 | 9:49 AMBy the time he was in his mid-20s in the early 1990s, Fred Douglas Brooks III claimed he was one of Baltimore’s biggest heroin dealers, using 50 aliases as he sat atop an organization with 30-plus employees and drug ties in 17 countries. Later, in the early 2000s, after federal agents caught up with him for a second time, he became a first-class snitch, helping the government build a high-stakes, West Coast drug case filled with international drug-cartel intrigue. Now, according to law enforcers in Maryland and Louisiana, Brooks is based in Houston and back to his old ways, overseeing the complex logistics of supplying kilograms of heroin from Mexican sources to wholesalers in Baltimore, New Orleans, New York, and elsewhere, and laundering the high-volume flow of cash that comes back to him in return.
