WARREN (WWJ) – A Grosse Pointe man with a lengthy criminal past could spend up to life in prison after Warren police officers discovered a large amount of drugs during a traffic stop earlier this week.
Cymone Dorsey, 40, was arraigned Wednesday on a number of drug charges, including delivery/manufacture of fentanyl, 1,000 grams or more, which is a life felony.
On Tuesday afternoon a Warren police officer was on routine patrol when he spotted Dorsey driving a white Jeep Grand Cherokee, traveling with a vision obstruction and defective equipment, according to Warren Police Commissioner Bill Dwyer.
After speaking with Dorsey, officers learned he had an invalid driver’s license and multiple outstanding traffic warrants.
When officers searched the Jeep they found a Detroit Red Wings tote bag containing several bags of narcotics. In total, officers found more than a kilogram of fentanyl, 554 grams of meth, 270 grams of cocaine and narcotic packaging materials and several cell phones – all of which are consistent with street-level narcotic transactions.
Officials estimate the drugs have a street value of about $70,000.
During an interview with narcotics detectives Dorsey made several admissions tying him to the narcotics in the vehicle.
In addition to the fentanyl charge, Dorsey was also charged with delivery/manufacture of cocaine 50 to 450 grams, a 20-year-felony, and delivery/manufacture of methamphetamine, a 7-year felony.
Dorsey shows an extensive criminal history for various crimes including burglary, safe-breaking, and other felonies, according to Warren police. He pleaded not guilty and bond was set at $100,000 cash/surety. His next court date is scheduled for June 13.
Dwyer says just one kilogram of fentanyl has the potential to kill up to 500,000 people.
“As we can all see, the amount of drugs recovered from this traffic stop no doubt saved the lives of thousands of people in the metro-Detroit area,” Dwyer said in a press release.
