Drug suspect caught with unregistered handgun, drugs, and ammunition

On February 23 at 5:15 a.m., members of the Vice Narcotics Unit were preparing to serve a search warrant in Waldorf relating to a drug distribution investigation. At that time, the person of interest in the investigation left the house in a car. Cpl. J. Morales attempted to stop the vehicle, but the driver fled and refused to pull over.

The suspect struck a Ford F-250, which was then pushed in a Chevrolet Tahoe near the intersection of Leonardtown Road and St. Charles Parkway. The suspect was apprehended without further incident. No one was injured. During the search of the suspect’s house, ammunition, a drum magazine for a handgun, a digital scale, and approximately $1,200.00 worth of marijuana were recovered along with packaging materials.

In addition, another search warrant was obtained for the suspect’s car where officers found a loaded handgun with no serial number and an additional loaded 30 round magazine. Andarius Ocyrus Conner, 21, of Waldorf, who was out on bond for a previous distribution case, was charged with possession of drugs with intent to distribute, illegal possession of a firearm, and numerous traffic charges.
