On Tuesday, the Maryland Transportation Authority Police arrested a Baltimore man after a probable-cause search led officers to find approximately 157 grams of suspected marijuana and a loaded handgun in his possession.
An MDTA Police officer stopped the driver, Kye-Ree Kenneth Martinez Young, a 19-year-old from Baltimore, on northbound Interstate 95 at mile-marker 62.8 in Rosedale, for not being restrained by a seat belt and an equipment violation.
Young was driving a 1999 Honda Civic. During a subsequent probable-cause search of the vehicle, officers located the suspected marijuana and the handgun.
MDTA Police charged Young with possession with the intent to distribute a controlled dangerous substance, knowingly transporting a firearm in a vehicle while traveling on a public road, possessing a firearm on person, being under the age of 21 and possessing a firearm, using a firearm in the commission of a felony, possession of drug paraphernalia, and transporting a firearm while taking part in drug trafficking.
After processing, officers took Young to the Baltimore County Court Commissioner. He is currently being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.
