Teens charged with marijuana distribution
Police reportedly find $40k worth of product
A Charles County man and a Prince George’s woman were arrested June 16 after police seized a large amount of marijuana after a search and seizure warrant was executed at their White Plains residence.
Breann Arlandra Harris-Washington, 19, and Antonio Lamount Harper Jr., 19, have both been charged with two counts of possession with intent to distribute, and with possession of marijuana weighing more than 10 grams.
According to court documents, when officers entered the residence of Harper and his girlfriend Harris-Washington, they both came downstairs from a bedroom. During
the search, Harper acknowledged the bedroom as one he shared with Washington.
Police allegedly found two large bags containing 1,040 grams of suspected marijuana, which were found on the top shelf of
the bedroom closet. The street value of the marijuana was $20,000, according to court documents. Additionally, documents noted that a small duffel bag and a large plastic bag containing approximately 220 grams of marijuana (a street value of $3,400) were discovered.
The June 16 search was conducted by members of an Alcohol Tobacco
and Firearms task force including Det. A. Thompson of the Prince George’s County Police Department and Det. Sgt. J.A. Burroughs with the Charles County Sheriff’s Office. The warrant was served at a home in the 7900 block of Heatherleigh Place in White Plains.
The signed and issued seizure warrant was issued
to Thompson, who was conducting an investigation into suspected criminal activity involving Harper.
A K-9 scan was conducted on a 2011 Chevrolet Camaro by Pfc. Kunz of the Charles County Sheriff’s Office. During the scan of the car — which, according
to court documents, bore the name of both Harper and Washington — the K9 alerted and the police allegedly found more marijuana in the vehicle. A Pelican-style case was found in the trunk of the suspects’ vehicle which contained two large bags of suspected marijuana which approximately amounted to 1,030 grams with a street value of $20,000.
According to court documents, more than 2,000 grams of marijuana were found — a street value believed to exceed more than $40,000.
