After receiving a complaint about a suspected drug dealer in the area, police launched an investigation that resulted in the arrest of a Baltimore man in Brooklyn Park on Thursday.
According to Anne Arundel County police, the county's Special Enforcement Section worked with the Baltimore Police Department’s Southern District Operational Flex Squad to search the Budget Plaza Motel located in the 4800 block of Ritchie Highway in Brooklyn Park on Thursday at about 2:56 p.m.
Police said the joint investigation between the counties stemmed from a complaint about a suspect dealing drugs in areas of Linthicum, Brooklyn Park and south Baltimore.
