A Baltimore gangster was sentenced to more than 21 years in federal prison yesterday for racketeering as a member of the Pasadena Denver Lanes, a faction of the Bloods gang. According to his plea agreement, Derrick Truesdale, 34, sold and distributed heroin and crack cocaine and participated in gang sanctions, said the Maryland U.S. attorney's office, which worked on the case with several city state's attorneys.
