October 18, 2008

FREDERICK, Md. - What started as a child welfare check Thursday prompted a search warrant that led to several drug arrests at a residence in the 15000 block of New Windsor Road in New Windsor, Md., police said.

A Maryland State Police trooper and a case worker from Frederick County Child Protective Services were invited into the residence, police said. The trooper allegedly observed a marijuana-smoking device on the living room coffee table and arrested a 37-year-old male occupant of the residence.

The trooper then contacted an investigator from the Frederick Barrack Criminal Investigation Section and the Frederick County Narcotics Task Force.

Fourteen marijuana plants were found in the basement of the residence, police said.

Approximately 4 ounces of marijuana, digital scales, packaging materials and numerous items for growing marijuana were seized, police said.

During the investigation, the owner of the residence - a 34-year-old woman - arrived and was arrested.

Police did not release the names of the people who were charged.
