Court records reveal the 30-year-old Seaford man was dealing heroin out of the home he shared with his fiancée and four-year-old son.
David C. Weiss, United States Attorney for the District of Delaware, announced that on Oct. 4, Tromar Mapp, 30, of Seaford, was sentenced to 80 months in prison for dealing heroin and possessing a handgun in furtherance of drug trafficking.
According to documents and arguments discussed in open court, Mapp sold heroin out of the Seaford home he shared with his fiancée and 4-year-old son. The evidence further demonstrated that Mapp was willing to use guns to further his drug trade. He kept a handgun with an extended magazine in his home, and he sent text messages to a drug customer threatening to shoot that customer for failure to pay a drug debt.
“The defendant presented a danger to his community, both by selling potentially deadly heroin and by possessing a gun in furtherance of his drug dealing," Weiss said. "We will aggressively pursue such defendants and do our best to insure that they are held accountable for their conduct.”
The case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives with assistance from the Delaware State Police and the Seaford Police Department. This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Jennifer K. Welsh and Alexander Mackler.
