Almost $12K in Marijuana Found in Residence That Houses a Day Care

Police found almost $12,000 worth of marijuana in a Maryland residence that also houses a day care, police said.

Anne Arundel County police executed a search-and-seizure warrant at a home in the 8600 block of Accokeek Street in Laurel, Maryland, about 2 p.m. Sunday. They seized 595.33 grams of marijuana including packaging, which has an estimated street value $11,906, police said.

They also found 2.96 grams of cocaine, with an estimated street value $59; $9,305; a heat sealer machine; and various paraphernalia and packaging materials, police said.

A day care operates out of the basement of the residence, but it does not appear children had access to the area where police found the drugs, police said. The Maryland Department of Education Licensing Branch was notified.

Police arrested Kamran Awan, 18, a resident of the home. He was charged with possession of marijuana and possession with intent to distribute marijuana.
