Police Press Release - September 21, 2022
Weapon/CDS Offense - Glen Burnie
On September 20, 2022, at approximately 9:00 p.m., detectives were on patrol in the area of Faywood Court and Faywood Avenue in Glen Burnie. Detectives approached a subject on Faywood Court, whom they had just witnessed rolling a cigarette/cigar. As detectives neared the subject, they observed a rolled marijuana cigarette and a bag of loose suspected marijuana within his reach. As detectives began to address the subject, he turned away from them, exposing an open satchel he was carrying. Detectives observed a large bag of suspected marijuana within the satchel. The subject was detained by officers, and a subsequent search of the subject and the satchel yielded a loaded black semi-automatic handgun, a magazine with ammunition, approximately 85g of suspected marijuana, three digital scales, 1 plastic bag with approximately 2g of suspected crack-cocaine and heroin/fentanyl. While detectives were conducting their investigation into the first subject, they encountered a second subject, a 15-year-old male, who was found to be in possession of a loaded black submachine gun. A check through state databases revealed that neither of the firearms was registered. Both subjects were arrested and charged accordingly.
