West End man arrested for gun possession and selling marijuana

A 26-year-old Alexandria man is being held without bond for gun possession and selling marijuana in the West End.

On June 29, Alexandria Police conducted a search of suspect’s apartment in the 5400 block of Roanoke Avenue after a weapons offense, according to a search warrant. They found a gun, and also 3.7 pounds of marijuana in plastic bags, two digital scales and $4,200 in cash.

Before leaving the apartment, police called the suspect on his phone. He answered, and reportedly admitted to police that the marijuana and firearm belonged to him. He also said that he was out of town and would turn himself in when he returned.

The suspect was arrested on July 19 while walking his dog. The suspect said he had to call his girlfriend to pick up the dog, and the officer saw him open and delete items on his Snapchat account. The phone was then seized.

The suspect’s apartment is near to where police uncovered a complex drug trafficking operation earlier this year.
