It would seem that Alonzo “Muscle” Outten would have slowed his Virginia heroin operation down a bit after his girl was was busted in Delaware in 2013, driving a load of heroin and cocaine from New York. It would seem he would get low after he caught state drug charges in Portsmouth in February 2014. He didn’t. Outten just posted bond and continued pumping in Portsmouth. Now, it’s too late. Today, Outten was sentenced to 30 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute heroin earlier this year.
According to court documents, the “Outten Organization” moved 30 to 90 kilos of heroin from November 2013 to this past July. That’s about $1.5 to $4.5 million on the street. Outten supplied to VA Blood sets: the Imperial Gangsta Bloods, led by Chris “Killa” Smith, who was sentenced to life in prison last week; and the Gorilla Mafia Pirus, led by Theodore “Flatline” Vann, who is facing a minimum of 24 years and four months, as he awaits sentencing. Outten reported supplied the Gorilla Mafia Pirus with 48 pounds of dope and the Imperial Gangsta Bloods with 26.
Outten imported raw heroin from New York, and transported it to Virginia by car or bus. According to Hampton Roads:
Outten’s organization stashed some of its drugs and proceeds in rented lockers at the Storage Depot on Airline Boulevard in Portsmouth, documents said. In the hopes of avoiding detection, they used the access code for a “clean” unit while moving in and out of the dirty unit that contained the drugs.
Court documents reveal more than three dozen controlled buys from Outten’s crew since May 2014, most of which were recorded or videotaped. Prosecutors also blame Outten as being the source of five non-fatal heroin overdoses.
Outten’s criminal record is lengthy, containing five juvenile convictions and 20 convictions as an adult. His first was an armed robbery charge, caught at the age of 12. Over the past 16 years, Outten has spent a total of ten years in prison.
