The boss of the “Get Dat Money” (GDM) drug trafficking organization in Macon, Georgia, was sentenced to serve 20 years in prison on Tuesday as the result of a lengthy investigation into the network’s illegal activities throughout Middle Georgia.
41-year-old Kelvin D. Carswell (photo above), who went by a variety of nicknames such as “K-9,” “Nine,” “Kinineso Harlem Carswell,” “9ne Oharlem,” and “Kninepunkin KinGcarswell,” had pleaded guilty to one count conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute methamphetamine on December 15, 2020.
“Many lives have been undoubtedly damaged, even destroyed, due to the actions of Kelvin Carswell and the members of the ‘Get Dat Money’ drug trafficking organization. Carswell brazenly orchestrated a prolific meth trafficking organization from behind prison bars, and he has now received the maximum penalty provided by law. He, along with his co-conspirators, are being held accountable for their destructive choices,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Peter D. Leary.
“The mansion”, prison, and Macon motels
In 2017, the Macon office of the FBI and the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office initiated an investigation into the Carswell drug trafficking organization known as “Get Dat Money” or “GDM.” On May 30, 2012, Carswell had been incarcerated by the Georgia Department of Corrections, serving a sentence for attempted carjacking with a maximum release date of October 12, 2026.
The FBI received information in June 2017 that Carswell was orchestrating the sale of drugs while incarcerated at the Washington State Prison in Sandersville, Georgia. A search of Carswell’s prison cell uncovered a quantity of drugs and a cellular phone with multiple SD cards. Investigators discovered Carswell was texting his co-conspirators explicit instructions via his contraband cell phone to facilitate the distribution of methamphetamine, heroin and crack cocaine from prison.
The drugs, once obtained, were sold from a residence Carswell and his co-conspirators referred to as “The Mansion” located at 373 Fulton Street in Macon. Carswell’s co-conspirators would sell drugs out of “The Mansion” at his direction. Drugs were also sold by distributors working at the behest of Carswell at multiple motels located in Macon. Throughout the course of the conspiracy, Carswell’s co-conspirators obtained more than 10,000 grams of methamphetamine for distribution at his direction.
