Man sold guns, drugs at Metro

A 23-year-old Mt. Airy, Md. man admitted Monday in federal court that he illegally sold prescription drugs and firearms to an undercover officer at the Bethesda Metro station, officials said.

David Glenn Bonett peaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt to distribution of Oxycodone and dealing in firearms without a license.

According to court papers, Bonett met an undercover Montgomery County Police detective at the Bethesda metro station five times since late January. He sold the detective guns and drugs.

During one January meeting, Bonett sold the detective a Taurus semi-automatic pistol and a magazine for $800. court records say. There were two sales in March. Then, on April 15, Bonett sold the undercover detective a .40 caliber semi-automatic firearm, three magazines, marijuana, and 50 80mg Oxycontin pills for $3,150. The final sale was later that month.

Bonett, who is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 23, faces a maximum sentence of 25 years in prison.

When I first so the heading to the article I thought they were trying to say that he sold drugs to METRO employees that worked for METRO. I wonder why the Post didn't state how much was on the guys Smart trip card.

instead of saying drug and gun sells at Bethesda Metro, which would have been even more eye grabbing, WashPost piles more blame on to Metro.
