LEONARDTOWN, MD (November 29, 2023) – Through a joint investigation conducted by the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division and the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office Drug Enforcement Unit, a search and seizure warrant was executed Wednesday, November 29, 2023, at an apartment in the 46000 block of Hilton Drive, Lexington Park, MD; the resident of the apartment was previously identified as 21-year-old Adam Joseph Holland.

During the search, detectives found a loaded privately made AR-15 pistol and a loaded Glock 29 semi-automatic handgun with obliterated serial numbers. Additionally, a large quantity of cannabis and US currency, and multiple items indicative of drug distribution, were found.

During the search of Mr. Holland and his vehicle, additional suspected cannabis was found. Holland was then released to the custody of the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office.

- CDS - Possession of Firearm
