  • Just-convicted Black Guerrilla Family prison-gang defendant Travis Paylor arrested for drug possession

    Just-convicted Black Guerrilla Family prison-gang defendant Travis Paylor arrested for drug possession
    Travis Paylor used to be a correctional officer (CO) at Baltimore City Detention Center, and was indicted with other COs for facilitating the Black Guerrilla Family prison gang's control of the facility's contraband economy. Unlike most of the 44 defendants in the high-profile federal racketeering case, Paylor took the charges against him to a jury, which found him and four others guilty on Feb. 5. He remains on supervised release pending sentencing—though that's not likely to last, now that assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Harding today filed a motion to revoke Paylor's release. Harding's motion doesn't say why he seeks revocation, but a review of state court records gives a likely reason: Paylor was arrested and charged on Feb. 9 with one count of "CDS: Possess–not marijuana," legalese for having on him some not-pot illegal drugs. He's being held in jail without bail, according to the court records, so producing him for the revocation hearing in federal court should be a cinch.
