Police say that detectives also found black powder pistols and seized 26 marijuana plants worth more than $18,000.

A man faces multiple drug-related charges after police said detectives searched a Glen Burnie home on Thursday and found marijuana, explosive devices and black powder pistols.

According to Anne Arundel County police, detectives from the northern district executed a narcotics search warrant in the 100 block of Georgia Avenue NW in Glen Burnie on Thursday just before noon.

Police discovered explosive-making materials and two explosive devices (pipe bombs) so they notified the Anne Arundel County Fire Department and Annapolis City Bomb Squad.

Three black powder pistols were also in the home, according to a police press release. The fire department recovered the items and police said the public was not at risk or in any danger from the devices.

Detectives seized 26 marijuana plants worth about $18,165 plus drug paraphernalia and more than 500 grams of marijuana worth about $5,235, according to police.

Police charged 51-year-old Delmus Marshal Rice Jr. of Glen Burnie with two counts of destructive device manufacture/possess/distribute, manufacturing and possession of marijuana, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia.

More people coud be arrested for dealing drugs if the police would stop protecting their drug dealing friends FACT! Even police participate in parties with their friends so nothing is going to be done. FACT! Break ins and robberies would stop if police stopped protecting their friends. FACT! FBI knows how corrupt the police, courts and representatives are; however, everyone protects each other.FACT1111 AACounty is disgusting , because many of the JUDGES WITH INTEGRITY have left in disgust over the way our courts are now. No I will not move either because I will not allow the threats from "CONFIDENTIAL INFORMANTS" stop me fromtelling who they are or the other corruption living in ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY. The cops with INTEGRITY are having to suffer because of the dirty cops. I just wish there was a cop like SERPICO who is not afraid to stand for TRUTH, JUSTICE , INTEGRITY AND PROTECT those who are being abused by a corrupt system. Hopefully, God will send some soon otherwise we are all doomed.............

Be patient Mary the system has never been perfect and were not doomed yet. There are more good cops than bad cops, but everyone in or out of the system has a conscience they have to live with. Fate will take care of the rest.

Sick person. Doubt there buddy. U don't know this man like I do he's my father n law & until u walk in someone elses shoes. Don't be so quick to judge. Have you ever heard of someone robbing a bank or killing someone smoking pot? Na didn't think so. If everyone would smoke a little we wouldn't be living in this shitty world right now. Its funny how his girlfriend walked on this when she had everything to do with it too. He should maybe be in a rehabilitation center. Not jail. If you pushed the issue a little more you wouldn't have to spend your tax dollars. On top of him losing his 29 yr old son while locked up for such a misdemeanor crime. When he should have been by his bed side. To whom in which was my fiance. Say what you want. We know the truth. That's what matters.
