The days of being required to wear masks in public are definitely over. An Alexandria man is being held without bond for allegedly selling Schedule I/II drugs, wearing a mask in public and being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.

The Alexandria Police Department arrested the 25-year-old suspect after responding to a drug complaint outside an apartment building in the 3200 block of Commonwealth Avenue in the city’s Del Ray neighborhood, according to a recently released search warrant affidavit.

The suspect allegedly wore a black ski mask and had black backpack when he was approached by police.

“After a brief foot pursuit, (the suspect) was stopped by the officers and taken into custody,” police said in the search warrant affidavit. “During a subsequent search of (the suspect’s) person and belongings, a loaded firearm was discovered in the backpack. Further, a large amount of United States currency and suspected narcotics were also seized from his person.”

The suspect was charged with selling Schedule I/II drugs, selling drugs while possessing a firearm, being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, wearing a mask or hood on private property and resisting arrest. He goes to court on Oct. 20.
