It's a scene not unlike those encountered in nearby Maryland. A particular house in Pasadena constantly smells like marijuana and plays host to a regular stream of cars slowing down, doing some business and then speeding away. Finally, neighbor complaints lead to a tactical narcotics enforcement team raiding the house and allegedly discovering the cause of both of these issues: 158 pot plants and other marijuana in bulk. A representative for the Anne Arundel County police department said that a search warrant was executed and that police seized plants and loose marijuana worth about $127,000.
Nine people in Maryland were taken into custody on Oct. 9 for possible drug dealing after authorities served search warrants on seven residences at the same time. Warrants were also issued for six individuals on Oct. 11 in an extensive raid for drug charges when local, state and federal law enforcement agencies cooperated in order to apprehend the individuals. The residences involved were located in Chesterton and Millington.
The Dorchester County Narcotics Task Force reportedly took eight people into custody in Cambridge on June 7 while executing a search and seizure warrant at an apartment. The search allegedly uncovered a loaded handgun, drug paraphernalia and sellable quantities of crack cocaine, cocaine and marijuana.
