Frederick police seize drugs, $33K in cash

Frederick police have arrested a man and woman and are looking for more leads after they seized cocaine, crack cocaine, marijuana, PCP and $33,000 in cash in two drug raids a week apart, said Lt. Clark Pennington, a police spokesman, on Monday, according to the Frederick News-Post.

Police seized a total of 3.3 pounds of cocaine, an ounce of crack cocaine, more than 1.5 pounds of marijuana and a trace amount of PCP. Officers think the cases are linked, though arrests were made only in connection with the second raid.

Veronica Barnes, 28, and Issca Foreman, 21, were each charged with possession with intent to distribute cocaine, possession with intent to distribute a large amount of cocaine, possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, and possession with intent to distribute marijuana. They also each face possession charges for cocaine, crack cocaine, marijuana and paraphernalia, police said.
