ANNAPOLIS, Md. — The Annapolis Police Drug Enforcement, Patrol, FLEX, Intelligence and K-9 Units conducted an initiative in the Harbour House and Robinwood communities that led to the seizure of over $50,000 worth of illegal drugs, $1,130 in currency and a car.

Authorities started the investigation in response to illegal drug sales and firearm related violence.

On Wednesday, authorities spotted 60-year-old Keith Brown, of Annapolis, leaning against a white Ford Crown Victoria that was parked on Brashears Street, at Monroe Street. He was spotted engaging in suspected drug activity. A K-9 scanned the vehicle and signaled that there were drugs under the car.

Officers found the following:

- 261 grams of suspected heroin with a street value of $31,389
- 124 grams of suspected crack cocaine with a street value of $12,400
- 44 grams of powder cocaine with a street value of $4,420
- 5 fluid ounces of suspected PCP with a street value of $5,000
- $1,130 in cash

The Crown Victoria was seized and Brown was arrested and charged with possession of a large amount of CDS, four counts of possession with intent to distribute narcotics, four counts of possession of CDS and three counts of possession of CDS paraphernalia.

After posting $25,000 bail, Brown was released from the Jennifer Road Detention Center.

This initiative was made possible, in part, due to funds provided by the Governor's Office of Crime Control and Prevention.
