Couple arrested, face charges of intent to distribute
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.
