ELKTON, Md. — Police trying to arrest a man wanted on an outstanding warrant wound up busting him and a compatriot for several drug crimes as well.
Elkton Police and Maryland State Police coordinated a response to 195 Red Hill Road in an attempt to locate Brandon Richard Majerowicz, who was wanted on a violation of probation warrant and a bench warrant, police said.
When police arrived at the house, they saw the 33-year-old Majerowicz leaning out of a window, tossing items to the ground. Officers entered the house and placed Majerowicz under arrest. Burns Alvin Ford, 31, was also found inside the house.
When officers investigated the items tossed from the residence, they “discovered several ‘bundles’ of suspected heroin/Fentanyl mix along with Xanax pills,” police said. Additional heroin/Fentanyl was found in the bathroom of the residence. Police secured the residence and obtained a search and seizure warrant to canvas the rest of the house.
Police found 34 Xanax pills, 239 baggies of heroin/Fentanyl mix, five cell phones, a digital scale, a glassine pipe, boxes of needles, and $5,753 in cash, inside the home, police said.
In addition to the outstanding warrant-related charges, Majerowicz and Ford were charged with multiple counts related to controlled dangerous substance criminal activities, police said.
