Three people were arrested on drug charges when a search and seizure warrant was served in the 15000 block of Nighthawk Lane in Bowie earlier this month. According to the Bowie Police Department, marijuana, cocaine and drug paraphernalia were confiscated in the raid.
The investigation and the warrant services were conducted by members of the Bowie Police Department. Not long ago, these tasks would have been handled by the Prince George's County Police Department, but the Bowie force is increasing its role.
"As the department moves forward and grows we will continue to work toward expanding our capabilities," said Bowie Deputy Police Chief John Nesky. "One of our objectives for the fiscal year is to begin establishing an investigative division, and we are moving steadily toward that goal."
