Jon Micah Velaszquez, 21, and Marcellus D. Carey, 25, both of 130 Boardman Place, Capital Heights, were released on bond Friday after appearing before U.S. Magistrate Judge James E. Seibert.

Velaszquez and Carey allegedly "unlawfully opened and maintained a place for the purpose of distributing" crack cocaine from June 2000 to June 2002, according to U.S. Attorney Thomas E. Johnston's office.

The 13-count indictment also accuses Velaszquez and Carey of specific instances of distributing crack cocaine several days in October 2001.

The case was investigated by the Eastern Panhandle Drug and Violent Crimes Task Force.
