BALTIMORE (AP) - An actress who appeared on the HBO series “The Wire” is being held without bail on charges of conspiring to sell heroin.

A Baltimore Circuit Court judge denied bail Friday for 30-year-old Felicia “Snoop” Pearson, who played a killer of the same name on the hit television series. Pearson is one of 64 people charged in a joint state-federal prosecution of a large east Baltimore drug gang dubbed “Operation Usual Suspects.”

Of the 38 people arrested by Thursday, 22, including Pearson, are facing state charges. An indictment charges Pearson with conspiring with two men to distribute heroin and aiding and abetting.

During the initial appearances for some of the others charged, state prosecutors mentioned that their charges were based on intercepted phone calls.
