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.
