A Baltimore man, who police say allegedly sold heroin that caused a fatal overdose in Harford County in October, was arrested last week and charged with multiple drug and firearms offenses, according to the Harford Sheriff’s Office.

Around 3 p.m. Thursday, detectives with the Harford County Task Force were conducting surveillance on Khalil Sadiq Shaheed, 24, of Baltimore, whom they had identified as the dealer in a fatal overdose in Edgewood on Oct. 17, according to a news release posted Tuesday on the Sheriff’s Office’s Facebook page.

As the afternoon progressed, detectives saw Shaheed allegedly conduct suspected multiple drug transactions, according to the news release. During a suspected drug transaction near the intersection of Bowley’s Lane and Sinclair Lane in Baltimore, members of the Task Force arrested Shaheed and took him to Central Booking in Baltimore.

Following the arrest, a search warrant was served on Shaheed’s vehicle and residence, the Sheriff’s Office said. During those searches, detectives seized a loaded 9 mm Sig Saur handgun, a loaded .25 caliber handgun, various calibers of ammunition, 67 grams of heroin, 76 grams of cocaine, 24 grams of crack cocaine, $12,000 in cash and other drug paraphernalia, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Shaheed is charged with two counts of narcotics possession with intent to distribute, two counts of drug possession other than marijuana, two counts possession of a firearm in relation to a drug trafficking crime, one count of possession of a stolen firearm and one count of illegal possession of ammunition, according to court records. As of Tuesday afternoon he was being held without bail.
