Local police have uncovered a drug operation in Reston that involved the discovery of 1,800 THC vape cartidges, 36 pounds of marijuana and other narcotics, along with guns.

The Fairfax County Police Department says its Gang Intelligence Unit uncovered the stash after they were alerted in February to a juvenile suspected of dealing narcotics and illegally possessing firearms.

The investigation led detectives to execute three search warrants for homes last Friday, March 8. At the juvenile’s home in the 11500 block of Cypress Point Circle, detectives found a 9mm rifle, handgun, ammunition, suspected psilocybin mushrooms, and suspected narcotics, according to the FCPD.

A search of a home in the 11201 block of Reston Station Blvd led to an even bigger haul: six pounds of marijuana, over 880 suspected THC vape cartridges, 160 suspected THC edibles, 690+ suspected Adderall pills, and further evidence of narcotics distribution, according to police.

A third search warrant in the 1500 block of Scandia Circle also uncovered 1000+ suspected THC vape cartridges, suspected THC oil, Marijuana seeds, and further evidence of narcotics distribution.

The 27-year-old resident of the Reston Station Blvd home was charged with one count of possession with the intent to distribute schedule I/II narcotics and four counts of possession with the intent to distribute marijuana.
