24 arrested on drug charges in Md.

By Washington Post editors

Anne Arundel County police have charged two dozen people with drug offenses after a six-month investigation in the Brooklyn Park area.

The investigation centered on drug dealing and gang activity and led to searches of eight homes and two cars. Police seized more than $3,000 worth of cocaine and $3,000 worth of marijuana, one handgun, cash and prescription drugs.

Police also submitted information to prosecutors that could lead to two homes being labeled nuisance houses because they've racked up multiple complaints about drug activity.

Twenty-three of the 24 people charged are in custody. Twenty-year-old Deondre Davis of Brooklyn Park remains at large.

Wow, 6 month investigation for that haul was hardly worth the good citizens of Anne Arundel County tax dollars.

I wonder what they would've got with a year long investigation, some bullets?

I am sure they made a difference to the other residents near this house. Sometimes it isn't all about "cash on the table."

I see punk and public enemy have a lot in common. No brains! Law enforcement isn't all about profit.

Trust me when I say that what they seized is not the only evidence against these dealers. Before the raid the police collected a ton of evidence which will lead to convictions. Its nice to have a big seizure but sometimes the police come on the wrong day.
