He’s a convicted drug dealer who’s taking his crimes across state lines then coming back to Detroit to hide out.

Ricky Walker is accused of selling drugs for as much as $70 a pill- the kind that lead to harder drugs – and deadly addictions.

With his previous drug convictions, the Marshals say there’s nothing that will stop him.

“Oxycodone and Oxymorphone pills, a huge quantity amount of them,” Deputy U.S. Marshal Aaron Garcia said.

He’s got a long rap and police say he’s a big part of our drug problem right here in Metro Detroit.

“They get hooked on this stuff and it’s poison, they cannot get off it,” Garcia said. “People are dying on a daily basis, it’s an epidemic.”

Ricky Walker was caught dealing drugs to a DEA Agent who was undercover in West Virginia in 2012.

“He’s from this area, there’s a huge pipeline between Detroit and West Virginia when it comes to pills, narcotics and heroin,” Garcia said.

The Marshals are certain he’s back in our area and continuing his life of crime.

“Five narcotics arrests, never learned his lesson,” Garcia said.

Walker is 45 years old 5 foot 9 inches and 140 pounds. He goes by the aliases

“He’s from this area, the Detroit Metro area and he has ties to the east side of Detroit and also the suburbs,” Garcia said.  “Clinton Twp, Harrison Twp, the suburbs in Macomb County he has huge ties to.”
