[ARCHIVED] Frederick Police Arrest man on Gun and Drug Charges. (1:00 display of seized material at FPD HQ)


A month long investigation wraps up with the arrest of two individuals for charges including possession of drugs and manufacturing weapons in Frederick.

At 1:00 today the media will have access to view the seized material and ask follow-up questions

The Frederick Police Department invites members of the media to view a large quantity of seized material from a long term investigation, which wrapped up last week, resulting in the arrest of two men. The display will include firearms and drugs seized during a search and seizure warrant. The display will be available today at 1:00 pm, at Frederick Police Headquarters, 100 W. Patrick St., Frederick Md.

In July 2015, the Frederick Police Department's Drug Enforcement Unit received information regarding the illegal distribution of CDS in Frederick City. During the investigation suppliers were identified, one of which was found to be illegally manufacturing and selling AR-15 assault rifles. FPD Drug Enforcement Officers and Agents from the Homeland Security Investigations were able to infiltrate the network using an undercover officer. During the month long investigation the undercover FPD officer was able to purchase two illegally manufactured AR-15 assault rifles. The officers determined the suspect was legally purchasing AR-15 rifle parts, assembling them, and effectively manufacturing assault weapons without serial numbers that were untraceable – and then illegally selling them to individuals. In addition to the assault weapons, the undercover officer was also able to make multiple purchases of marijuana from Schumaker.

A search and seizure warrant was then conducted at a home on Amy's Ter, Mount Airy, Maryland, in which the following was recovered from the location.

-$3,600 U.S. Currency
-Approximately one pound of marijuana with a street value of $3600
-homemade suppressors for firearms
-multiple smoke projectiles
-30 rd handgun magazines
-28 firearms including the two purchased during the investigation
-assault rifle manufacturing equipment
-multiple body armor vests

Investigators were later able to locate and identify the supplier from which the pound of marijuana originated. It was determined during the investigation that the supplier was trafficking the marijuana supply into Frederick County, Maryland from New York. A subsequent search warrant was executed at the supplier’s house which was located on Woodville Rd, Mt Airy MD. At that location three more assault rifles, a small amount of marijuana, bath salts, scheduled prescription pills, and approximately $4500 in cash were seized.

The Frederick Police Department is thankful for the cooperation and partnership we have with our Federal law enforcement agencies, and particularly the Homeland Securities Investigations of Frederick, Maryland, which resulted in this significant seizure and these two arrests.
