Inmate Smuggles Drugs Into Anne Arundel Prison: Police
ANNAPOLIS, MD - An inmate smuggled drugs into an Annapolis prison, police announced Friday.
Officers identified the suspect as 32-year-old Lamonte De’Andre Henson of District Heights.
The investigation ran throughout January and examined the illegal possession and distribution of drugs throughout the Jennifer Road Detention Center, authorities said.
Police said they identified Henson as the suspect and on Jan. 17 detained and searched him.
Officers said they found and seized "numerous orange sub-lingual film strips of suspected Suboxone."
Suboxone is a prescription-only drug that doctors use to treat patients with an opioid addiction.
Court records show that Henson was charged with:
- Possession of CDS (not cannabis) - Misdemeanor
- Possession of CDS with the intent to distribute - Felony
- Possession of contraband within a place of confinement - Misdemeanor
Detectives said they applied for an arrest warrant for Henson and served it on Jan. 22.
The Anne Arundel County Police Department said the investigation also involved the Maryland State Police and the Anne Arundel County Department of Detention Facilities under the Maryland Criminal Intelligence Network.
The Governor’s Office of Crime Prevention and Policy provides grant funding and strategic support to Maryland Criminal Intelligence Network member sites. The money is used to identify, disrupt and dismantle criminal organizations.
