(STL.News) – The FBI in Baltimore announces the arrest of Roger Taylor (aka “Milk”) of Baltimore. Taylor was taken into custody on a federal warrant for conspiring to participate in a violent racketeering enterprise known as “Trained to Go” (TTG) and conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute heroin, cocaine, and marijuana.
Taylor is alleged to be a member of the Trained to Go gang, which operated in the Sandtown neighborhood in Baltimore City. Authorities had been looking for Taylor since his federal indictment in July 2017.
Taylor, age 28, was recently located in Veron, Dominican Republic. He was arrested by the FBI’s Baltimore Violent Crimes Task Force and is scheduled to have his initial appearance in Miami on Monday, July 8th. Taylor will be brought back to Baltimore to face federal charges.
The FBI would like to thank the Dominican Republic National Police; FBI Legal Attaché Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic; and the United States Marshals Service for their assistance in locating Taylor and taking him into custody.
“This case goes to show that no matter how long it takes, the FBI will work to get justice for the victims,” said Jennifer C. Boone, special agent in charge of the Baltimore Division. “The cooperation with our local, national, and international partners should send a message to those committing crimes that we will find you.”
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. If convicted, Taylor faces a maximum sentence of life in prison.
