BALTIMORE, MD—Members of the Baltimore Police Department in partnership with the Baltimore County Police Department have seized a large quantity of narcotics, money and guns as a result of a multi-jurisdiction investigation into the East Coast Farms group.

On March 27, 2023, the two agencies affected search warrants at three residential locations and one commercial location between Baltimore City and Baltimore County, following a three-month-long investigation.

As a result of the searches, the following items were seized:

  • $189,224
  • 3 handguns
  • Approximately 1,200 pounds marijuana
  • 150 purple skittles THC infused edibles
  • 375 yellow skittles THC infused edibles
  • 92 trolli gummies THC infused edibles
  • 399 purple THC vape cartridges
  • 300 red THC vape cartridges
  • 301 black THC vape cartridges
  • 9 assorted THC infused edibles
  • 23 cases containing 50 boxes each rocket gummies THC-infused edibles
  • Assorted packaging material
  • 1 money counter machine
  • Various electronics

All seized property has been submitted as evidence.

“This is truly an outstanding achievement thanks to the dedicated and proactive efforts of the BPD’s Eastern District Action Team, Southeast District Action Team and our partnership with the Baltimore County Police Department,” said Commissioner Michael Harrison. “Through communication and collaboration, we were able to get a significant amount of illegal drugs and several weapons off our streets to disrupt the flow of illegal drugs in our neighborhoods.”

Detectives arrested 25-year-old Anthony Anderson, 26-year-old Anthony Osodi, 26-year-old Trent Jenkins, and 23-year-old Xavier George, as part of this investigation.

Officials say this seizure is a direct result of the collaborative efforts and the sharing of information between regional law enforcement partners, in addition to a tip from the community.
