A four-month investigation led by the Carroll County Narcotics Task Force resulted in the arrest of a Baltimore man who police believe supplied drugs to Carroll County and several areas.
The Carroll County Narcotics Task Force, the Maryland State Police Strike Force 7, and the Baltimore Police Department conducted a search and seizure warrant at 41-year-old Clement Young's home in Baltimore. They say officers found 2.1 kilograms of suspected cocaine, more than 35 grams of suspected heroin, more than one dozen suspected hydrocodone pills, a small amount of marijuana and more than $4,300 in suspected drug-related cash. They also found an AK74 semi-automatic rifle loaded with 29 rounds of ammunition and a loaded .40 caliber handgun.
Young was arrested by Baltimore Police officers and charged with drug possession/distribution and gun related charges. Officials say the investigation is still ongoing.
Carroll County Police say the drug bust was part of an investigation to identify drug suppliers and dealers who have been impacting Carroll County and surrounding counties in the Baltimore area.
The investigation was a collaborative effort including multiple agencies such as Maryland State Police, Carroll County Sheriff’s Office, the Westminster Police Department, the Carroll County State’s Attorney’s Office, and the Homeland Security Investigations, with assistance from the Carroll County Repeat Offender Unit.
