State troopers arrested two Bryans Road residents Tuesday afternoon after finding marijuana inside a Dakota Street home, the Maryland State Police La Plata barrack reported.

Darnell Andre Holman, 24, and Amaris Ann Hartshorne, 27, have been charged with marijuana possession with intent to distribute, marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Troopers went to the home to serve an open arrest warrant. There, they met Holman and Hartshorne and noticed that the home smelled like burnt marijuana, police reported.

The troopers detained Holman and Hartshorne and obtained a search warrant for the home. Inside, with help from the Maryland State Police Narcotics Unit, they found an amount of marijuana that brought felony charges, smoking devices, digital scales, a metal grinder, several hundred small plastic bags and other packaging indicative of drug dealing, police reported.

Additional arrests are pending a review with the Charles County State’s Attorney’s Office.
