On March 16, 2011 detectives from the Anne Arundel County Police Department’s Special Enforcement Section working with HIDTA detectives intercepted a suspicious parcel at a local package sorting facility in Anne Arundel County. Detectives were able to obtain a search warrant for the parcel. Upon opening the parcel, detectives located 21 bags of suspected high grade marijuana. Detectives then conducted a controlled delivery of the parcel to a local hotel.
A short time later, detectives arrested Cynthia Hathaway, who was coming to the hotel to pick up the parcel. Detectives then delivered the parcel to a location in the Annapolis area, where they observed a second subject, Charles Mcloud, take the parcel and walk towards his vehicle. Detectives subsequently arrested Mcloud and recovered the parcel.
A search warrant was obtained for Mcloud’s residence located at 363 Forest Beach Road in Annapolis.
