LA PLATA, Md. - The Charles County Sheriffs Office arrested three La Plata residents after serving search warrants early Thursday, April 26 for two separate drug investigations.
The Community Policing (COPS) Unit began the investigations based on citizen reports of drug use in neighborhoods off of Glenn Albin Road in La Plata. As a result of those investigations, they applied for search warrants for 457 Patuxent Court and 108 Little Creek Lane. The warrants were executed by COPS officers, vice/narcotics detectives and the Emergency Services Team around 7 a.m.
Police say that during the investigation on Patuxent Court, officers seized 11 marijuana plants which were actively growing. Each plant was worth about $2,200. They also seized equipment used to grow marijuana, a scale, pipes and other drug paraphernalia. Two residents, Maysa Miller, 19, and her father, George Frederick Miller, 48, a librarian at Westlake High School in Waldorf, were arrested at the home and charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana, possession of marijuana, manufacturing marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana production materials. Officers also found a Xanex pill in Maysa Millers bedroom that was not prescribed to her and charged her additionally with possession of Xanex.
Police say that at the residence on Little Creek Court, officers seized cocaine with a street value of $500, marijuana, OxyContin, drug paraphernalia and more than $4,000 in cash. The resident, James William Calomeris, 33, who is self-employed in the floor and carpet business, was arrested at the home and charged with possession with intent to distribute cocaine, possession of cocaine, obtaining a controlled dangerous substance by fraud, possession of OxyContin, possession of marijuana and two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia.
