One of Baltimore’s biggest ever drug dealers has been jailed for 25 years for shipping a ton of cocaine – and enjoying a life of fast cars, designer clothes and luxury properties with the earnings.
Garnett Gilbert Smith’s lavish life was revealed in court in Baltimore, where he was found guilty of shipping the drugs from California to Maryland between 2010 and 2011.
The 44-year-old cleared $10,000 profit on each kilogram, raking in more than $10 million in total, according to court documents. Prosecutors say he also trafficked heroin.
He splashed the cash on stays at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills – where rooms can reach $1,000 a night – and owned or rented numerous properties in Baltimore, Georgia, Virginia and California.
He had an impressive fleet of 19 luxury vehicles, including a $162,300 Lamborghini Murcielago, a $219,000 2009 Maybach, a $165,000 Aston Martin and motorcycles worth up to $65,000.
His designer wardrobe included items from Gucci, Cartier and Louis Vuitton.
Authorities also seized $258,000 worth of shoes, belts, pants, glasses, belts, hats and bags from his Atlanta storage unit, the Baltimore Sun reported.
They also took £1.1 million in jewelery from his condo in Studio City, California, and $741,000 in cash – some hidden in speakers and tool boxes – from his Maryland home.
