The Narcotics Enforcement Division seized 375 cartridges of THC oil during the execution of a search warrant in College Park. One suspect was taken into custody. He’s 21-year-old Brandon Kraut of Holland, Pennsylvania.
The search warrant was executed last week at a home on Dickinson Avenue. The seized THC oil is in the form of vapor cartridges to be used in vaping instruments. THC is a hallucinogenic and the chemical compound in marijuana and is illegal to possess in Maryland.
“This case shows the availability of products on the market that enable individuals to openly use drugs that are illegal in Maryland without being detected. This product masks the odor of marijuana and the user appears to be vaping with legal products. Vape pens are now being used to ingest dangerous drugs such as methamphetamine and heroin, in addition to marijuana and hash oil. We want our community to be aware of this trend.” said Major Timothy Muldoon, Commander of the Narcotics Enforcement Division.
