GREENBELT, Md. (WUSA9) -- A Maryland cocaine dealer, nicknamed "Country" was sentenced to 15 years in prison Friday by the Chief U.S. District Judge Deborah K. Chasanow.

Damon Jerome Estep was sentenced to 15 years followed by five years of supervised release for the conspiring to distribute and possession with the intent to distribute five kilograms or more of cocaine and 280 grams of crack, police said.

The thirty-eight-year-old Estep conspired with Alrahman Allen, Jamar Holt and Jeffrey Berry to distribute cocaine and crack between February 2012 and April 2013 in southern St. Mary's County, according to authorities.

Holt provided Allen with the drugs and called Estep to coordinate the delivery of cocaine to Estep, Berry and others in the area, authorities said.

The three men met almost every week in the Glen Burnie area and paid Allen for various quantities of cocaine for further distribution in the county, authorities said.

Once the cocaine was brought to the stash locations, Estep and others would cook portions of the cocaine into crack and distribute it throughout the area, according to authorities.

The drugs were stored in different locations, 20141 Point Lookout Road in Great Mills, and at 18310 Three Notch Road in Lexington Park, authorities said.

Estep's accomplices Alrahman Sharif Allen, Jamar Holt, Jamal Holt and Jeffrey Kirk Berry previously pleaded guilty and are awaiting sentencing, authorities said.
