A Salisbury man was sentenced to 12 years in federal prison followed by 3 years of supervised release for conspiracy to possess and distribute fentanyl and fentanyl analogues.  The sentence for 38 year old Narada Walls was announced by the US Attorney for the District of Maryland.  The investigation showed Walls used assumed names and fake email addresses to purchase fentanyl from suppliers in China and had the product shipped to acquaintances on the Eastern Shore.  Walls was arrested in December of 2017 at his Salisbury home – a search warrant turned up 419 grams of fentanyl, drug paraphernalia and over $18,000 in drug proceeds.  Earlier in the year, a woman Walls was in a relationship with ingested some of the product and died.
