Sapper is an incarcerated former enforcer for the Barksdale Organization.


Season 3

He often worked with Gerard and appeared to be the less intelligent of the two. Sapper was first seen guarding the back door during an attempted heist by Omar Little. Gerard, Sapper, and "Cutty" Wise were charged with finding a thief within in the organization. Cutty's experience made the task simple and Gerard and Sapper punished the culprit with a savage beating. Gerard and Sapper were later thrown out of Avon Barksdale's homecoming party when Barksdale saw them come in high. Gerard and Sapper were later involved in the attempted shooting of Omar while escorting his grandmother to church in violation of the Sunday truce. They were ordered by Avon Barksdale to replace a hat that they damaged in this unsanctioned action. Sapper was arrested for weapons violations at the Barksdale safehouse.
