A 20-year-old Alexandria man is in custody after allegedly selling illegal drugs to hundreds of people over the course of the pandemic.
The man was arrested at his apartment in the 6100 block of Edsdall Road in August and charged with possession with the intent to distribute marijuana, possession with the intent to distribute a Schedule IV substance, manufacturing or selling a controlled substance and reckless handling of a firearm. He is currently being held without bond in the Alexandria jail.
A search of the suspect’s home yielded a firearm, marijuana, Xanax, Codein syrup, digital scales and almost $6,000 in bulk United States currency, according to a search warrant affidavit.
Police are also searching for a 19-year-old man, who is an alleged accomplice and advertised drugs for sale in multiple Snapchat posts between February and August.
The Snapchat posts include pictures of Oxycodone and other prescription pills, a “large quantity of suspected cocaine,” THC edibles, and posts with the suspects holding firearms, according to police.
Between February and March alone, the alleged accomplice “conversed with over 400 individuals with an estimation of over 2,500 messages,” according to the affidavit. “Your affiant observed that over 100 individuals had 10 or more messages in their conversations… The majority of the messages were related to the distribution of controlled substances.”
