On February 14 at 11:34 p.m., officers observed a suspicious vehicle next to a business in the 9300 block of W&W Industrial Road in La Plata and made contact with two subjects. The subjects advised they were picking up a vehicle they had repaired at the business.

Officers observed the odor of marijuana emanating from one of the involved vehicles. Further investigation of the vehicle revealed 56 grams of marijuana, packaging materials, and a digital scale. The male subject, Stephen Michael Smith, 26, of Mechanicsville, MD, was also in possession of marijuana and the female subject, Kathryn Lindsay Morrison, 26, of Alexandria, VA, was in possession of heroin.

Smith and Morrison were both arrested and charged with possession with the intent to distribute and possession of paraphernalia. Cpl. J. Walter investigated.
