A Baltimore man suspected of supplying Carroll County with illegal drugs was arrested in Baltimore on Monday, according to a Wednesday afternoon news release from the Carroll County Drug Task Force.
Clement Young, 41, of the 2100 block of Braddish Ave., is charged with three counts of possession of a large amount of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute, three counts of possession with intent to distribute narcotics, three counts of possessing a firearm while committing a drug crime, as well as illegal possession of a firearm, and ammunition and related charges, according to electronic court records.
A Carroll County Drug Task Force investigation launched in February identified Young as one of several suppliers of drugs to the county, according to the release. The task force is a collaboration between the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office, Carroll County State’s Attorney’s Office, Carroll County Repeat Offender Unit, Maryland State Police, Westminster Police Department and Homeland Security Investigations.
On Monday, the Maryland State Police Special Tactical Assault Team Element — in conjunction with the Carroll County Drug Task Force, Maryland State Police Strike Force 7 and the Baltimore Police Department — served a search warrant at Young’s address, according to the release.
The search uncovered more than two kilograms of cocaine, 35 grams of heroin, $4,300 in cash, an AK-47 semi-automatic rifle and a .40-caliber handgun, each of which were loaded, according to the release, along with small amounts of opioid medications and marijuana.
Young was arrested and taken to the Baltimore Central Booking Intake Facility, where is was being held without bond Wednesday, according to electronic court records. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 24 in Baltimore City District Court.
