The Kent Island Bay Times - - News -

KINGSTOWN — The Queen Anne’s County Drug Task Force charged a man and woman from the Ch­ester­town area with pos­ses­sion of nar­cotics with in­tent to dis­trib­ute af­ter locating sus­pected oxy­codone and methadone in their home, in ad­di­tion to sus­pected mar­i­juana, sus­pected psychedelic mush­rooms and drug para­pher­na­lia.

They are iden­ti­fied as Thomas Ran­dolph Allen and Jamie Marie Rosetta, both 32, of 305 Riverview Road.

Allen and Rosetta were re­leased from the Queen Anne’s County De­ten­tion Cen­ter af­ter post­ing prop­erty bond of $25,000 on March 30, the day af­ter they were ar­rested.

Allen and Rosetta each have a pre­lim­i­nary hear­ing in the District Court for Queen Anne’s County on April 26. At that time, a judge will de­ter­mine if there is prob­a­ble cause to be­lieve that they com­mit­ted the of­fenses.

Ac­cord­ing to the Queen Anne’s County Sher­iff’s Of­fice, a knock and an­nounce war­rant was served at Allen and Rosetta’s home at 8 a.m. March 29. Rosetta was in the home, with Allen lo­cated nearby when the war­rant was served. En­try was made through a locked door when Rosetta did not an­swer the door, po­lice said.

Po­lice listed the fol­low­ing items seized from the home: 524 grams of sus­pected mar­i­juana; 8.4 grams of sus­pected psilo­cy­bin mush­rooms; 100 sus­pected oxy­codone pills; nine sus­pected methadone pills; 36.2 grams of sus­pected K-2 style syn­thetic mar­i­juana; dig­i­tal scales; pack­ag­ing ma­te­ri­als for street-level dis­tri­bu­tion; and $280 in U.S. cur­rency.

The Queen Anne’s County Drug Task Force was as­sisted by the Kent County Nar­cotics Task Force, Home­land Se­cu­rity In­ves­ti­ga­tions and uni­formed troop­ers from the Mary­land State Po­lice bar­rack in Cen­tre­ville.
