Maryland State Police, Anne Arundel County Police and Homeland Security Investigations served a warrant Thursday in the 4500 block of Pennington Ave. in Curtis Bay, where they found heroin, crack cocaine, powdered cocaine, marijuana, synthetic marijuana, prescription opioids and two handguns, according to state police.

After police laid out their expansive case against 21 people for allegedly running a drug ring, questions remained about who was still at large, how police developed their charges against such a wide-ranging group of people and what exactly is xylazine. Here is what we know so far.

Davis was arrested at the scene and taken to the Maryland State Police Glen Burnie Barrack before he was transported to the Baltimore Police Department’s Southern District awaiting a transfer to central booking.

His case was not listed in online court records Thursday night, and it was unclear whether he had an attorney.
