Known as “Operation All Aboard” this investigation, that began from two community tips, ultimately led to a court authorized wiretap of 18 phone lines and one social media messenger platform and took investigators across the country.
Narcotics Task Force detectives and prosecutors worked tirelessly from developing the tips, in February 2019 and lasting well into 2020, to bring the investigation to a close.
The indictment alleges that the drug trafficking organizations led by Che Durbin and Reggie Bolden were responsible for the distribution of large quantities of cocaine throughout Harford County.
During the course of the investigation, law enforcement travelled to Tucson, Arizona and observed what they believed to be narcotics related transactions occurring in furtherance of the conspiracy and cocaine being transported directly back to Harford County for distribution.
Multiple search warrants were executed throughout Harford County. Recovered during the course of this investigation were more than 2.5 kilos of cocaine, 66.2 grams of crack cocaine, 69 pills of fentanyl, 435 grams of marijuana, 31 suboxone strips, 28 firearms, 19 vehicles valued at more than $258,000, and approximately $110,000 in US currency.
Charges against some individuals are State charges pending in the Circuit Court for Harford County while others have been indicted on Federal charges and are pending in the United States District Court of Maryland.
An indictment is not a finding of guilt. An individual charged by indictment is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty at some later criminal proceedings.
The Harford County Task Force is a highly trained, self-governing, multi-jurisdictional entity with a mission to investigate and prosecute offenses in the areas of mid to upper level drug trafficking, homeland security, and vice while supporting and facilitating cooperation and coordination among federal, state, and local law enforcement. We pledge to complete this mission without prejudice or partiality by utilizing intelligence-driven policing with valor, virtue, and integrity.

I keep expecting to see my neighbor’s name in something like this… he and his wife have a lot of “unexplained wealth” and are pretty shady characters.
Oh well… maybe next time!
I’m surprised that Jon Adam McCarty wasn’t named in this article… he is a career criminal if there ever was one.
Say it With a Straight Face says
Which Che Durbin is this? There’s a Sr. who has 3 pages of criminal complaints against him or Jr. who has 2 pages of criminal complaints. Either way pretty clear this family is scum.
It’s the Sr., because of the age.
Mike Thomas says
Hopefully they hit that Durbin criminal with money laundering as well… doing a web search of his name shows he has a “transportation company” (LLC) as well. Yeah, LOL, he’s definitely transporting some stuff.

Well shit fire! Aren’t you just quite the sleuth!
Do you handle more intense cyber or even international cyber? Could assign you to Hunter’s laptop.
Uncle Eddie says
Just like the rest of the “high profile” cases, and even the low profile cases, these dirtbags will get slaps on the wrists, or get the charges dropped all together.
What do you expect? They let MURDERERS out of jail in 8 years in this State. If the those that claim to be the LAW are letting a murderer out in such a short amount of time, why would you think a drug dealer would get more? If “common law” crimes are now considered minor offenses, such as murder, rape, theft and destruction of property, the public is NOT being served correctly. It’s the Democratic way. Remember, rioting, looting and burning down cities is considered peaceful protesting…meanwhile, selling drugs is getting people more time than committing murder. How did this happen? Everyone should thank the Democratic Traitors Against America for creating this shit show.

Maryland has a Republican Governor thats serving his second term. If there’s issues in the state shouldn’t you be blaming the Republicans for the issues? I actually like Governor Hogan, hope he runs for Senate or President.
No. As we have seen, even idiotic legislation that the Governor vetoes gets over ridden by the Senate and the House of Delegates, which are controlled by the Democratic Traitors Against America and the “Not See” Party that they all belong to. However, Hogan isn’t a Republican, he’s a RINO, whom isn’t fit to serve in the US Senate or the US Presidency. Hogan has been a disappointment since the offset of the scamdemic and even tho he did do some good involving tolls at first, we now see that his idiotic policy of removing toll booths now costs any of us without an EZ Pass $6.00 at every toll. This is unacceptable and is nothing but an unlegislated tax hike by a RINO who is really a stooge for the Democratic “Not See” Party…
Open Your Eyes says
I have to agree with SoulCrusher. Governor Hogan is a nice enough guy but is actually a RINO who happened to be challenged in two elections by two uncharismatic candidates. One of which was such a radical socialist that he even even scared away many Democrats. Governor Hogan attempted to align him self with the Democratic majority in the state by denouncing then candidate and subsequently President Trump. This strategy was clearly his prerogative HOWEVER, in his attempt to appeal to Democrats he may have actually fraudulently violated election laws. He admitted to “knowingly” writing in the name of a known deceased person during the Presidential election. He admitted to writing in the name of Ronald Reagan. I realize that during the election process many names get written in ie. Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck etc. By the way both of them could out perform and are probably smarter than the current occupant of the White House but that is a topic for another day. I certainly don’t feel that Mr . Hogan is the best choice for a Republican Presidential candidate. He seems to think so but everyone can dream.

You sound like you speak from experience….You would be the Indicted Felon Mr. Edward Keplin would you?
Did anyone catch TRAITOR Joe’s speech yesterday when he said every Country has a right to sovereignty and security on their borders? Apparently, he doesn’t believe the same thing for the United States because our border isn’t secure with that geriatric moron in charge. Biden is a complete moron and when he says crap like this, but does the exact opposite here in our Country, it shows ALL of us that he and the Democrats hate the United States. What a moron….
relax old man, you’re going to pass out!
No. I doubt I’d pass out. I may piss myself laughing at that stupid geriatric fool you call President and I call TRAITOR. However, I may pass out the next time I go to the gas station because of the prices caused by that idiot’s policies regarding oil. Biden really is the most incompetent moron whom ever has been President and I still don’t think that piece of shit won the 2020 election. The Democracy of idiots and thieves must be destroyed in order for Americans to survive…
