FBI wiretap leads to drug arrest

By Washington Post editors

The FBI has arrested a D.C. area man they say was a mid-level drug dealer who said in a recorded phone call that he was going to make his Tennessee supplier "stop breathing" for selling him poor-quality cocaine, the Washington Examiner reports.

Rico Toliver was the target of an FBI wiretap for allegedly supplying PCP and crack cocaine to local dealers, according to court records filed in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt. In a recorded phone conversation, Toliver bragged of having satisfied customers "in the city all the way to Annapolis," according to the FBI. He also said that he's willing to drive "all the way to Manassas" for worthy clients.

No lawyer was listed in court records for Toliver. He's currently being held on a charge of intent to distribute cocaine.
