Anne Arundel County Police arrested and charged two people in connection to a drug trafficking ring and conspiracy to disseminate heroin, cocaine, "crack" and fentanyl spanning October of 2019 to May of this year.

They are also being charged with firearm infractions. According to a news release, the names of the suspects are not currently being published due to the current investigation.

Four federal search and seizure warrants were executed in Glen Burnie, Millersville and Owings Mills, police said. The search warrants resulted in two arrests, the seizure of eight firearms, including two assault rifles, approximately 1.2 kilograms of heroin, approximately 1.5 kilograms of cocaine, 97 grams of crack cocaine, 89 grams of fentanyl, and $149,221, police said. Federal warrants were obtained for a vehicle about the case. During the search of the vehicle, 11 kilograms of fentanyl and 270 grams of heroin were seized. The total street value of the drugs totaled approximately $1.7 million.

The collaborative efforts of multiple agencies resulted in the arrests of two individuals and a copious amount of drugs and firearms, ultimately resulting in a safer Annapolis and Anne Arundel County. Thank you to our law enforcement partners,” Ed Jackson, Annapolis Police Chief, said in a statement on the issue. “It is difficult to measure the unknown, but the removal of the fentanyl from the streets saved numerous lives and much heartache for families.”
