Police bust suspected marijuana operation in Glover Park

November 23

“D.C. police on Tuesday arrested four people and charged them with selling marijuana out of a second-floor storefront on Wisconsin Avenue in Glover Park, near the vice president’s residence at the U.S. Naval Observatory in Northwest Washington.

Authorities said police seized 3.25 pounds of marijuana in a raid on Tuesday. Arrest affidavits say police negotiated the purchase of $710 worth of marijuana in October through a website called leafedin.org, a networking site for the District’s pot community.

According to the police affidavit, the web site also listed an address for the store in the 2300 block of Wisconsin Avenue NW, a commercial strip that includes a grocery store, dry cleaner, bagel shop and several chain restaurants.

Police identified the suspects as: Conner MacLeod Donahue, 24, of Woodbridge, Va; Marvin Alphonzo Harvison, 42, of Southeast; Sidi Mohamed Chendid, 29, of Alexandria, Va.; and Gary Little, 29, of Northeast. All were charged with distribution of marijuana.

As of November 2014, people in the District are allowed to possesses up to two ounces of marijuana, cultivate a small number of plants and give less than one ounce of the substance to another person.

Interim D.C. Police Chief Peter Newsham said the investigation began with a complaint about the store.”
