CHESTERTOWN — The seizure of felony amounts of THC oil and suspected marijuana and more than $2,000 in suspected proceeds of drug sales led to the arrest of two Chestertown residents earlier this month.
Alexandria Leigh Williams, 22, and Kaitrell Shamar Wright, 18, on Aug. 19, were issued summonses charging them with manufacture of marijuana; possession of more than 10 grams of marijuana; possession of marijuana with intent to distribute; and possession of drug paraphernalia.
The Kent County Narcotics Task Force on July 31 executed a search and seizure warrant at the apartment in the 800-block of High Street that Williams and Wright shared. In addition to the suspected marijuana, police seized digital scales, a small indoor marijuana grow and $2,140 in cash, according to a news release.
The Chestertown Police Department, the Kent County Sheriff’s Office and troopers from the Centreville barrack of the Maryland State Police assisted with execution of the warrant, which was obtained following “numerous citizen complaints of controlled dangerous substances being distributed from the residence,” according to the news release from the drug task force.
Chestertown police service the summonses Aug. 19.
The Kent County Narcotics Task Force is a cooperative enforcement effort between the Maryland State Police, Kent County Sheriff’s Office, Chestertown Police Department, Kent County State’s Attorney’s Office and Maryland Department of Natural Resources Police.
