GLEN BURNIE, Md. — Anne Arundel County detectives arrested a Glen Burnie man for being in possession of a loaded handgun and drug paraphernalia.

On Thursday, detectives from the Gang and Firearms Investigations Unit were conducting a pro-active enforcement in Glen Burnie when they noticed a suspicious vehicle on Gentle Breeze Court. When they approached the vehicle, officers noticed the suspected CDS sitting in plain sight.

After detaining the occupant, 24-year-old Larry Mereal Witcher, Jr., officers searched the vehicle and recovered a loaded Glock 19 9mm handgun, 15 loose rounds of 9mm ammunition, a plastic bag that contained suspected marijuana (less than 10 grams) and several items of CDS paraphernalia.

Officials say that Witcher is being charged with Loaded Handgun in Vehicle and Handgun in Violence.
