March 22, 1992

Federal narcotics agents raided a home on the outskirts of Annapolis yesterday and seized 15 pounds of marijuana, $20,000 in cash, 16 silver bars and another $100,000 buried in a plastic pail in the back yard.

A tip from state police in Arizona led the federal Drug Enforcement Administration to discover what agents believe was one of the largest marijuana-trafficking operations in the Annapolis area.

DEA agents and Anne Arundel County police searched the home in the 1800 block of Shively Court in Rolling Knolls and found 15 pounds of marijuana, which has a street value of $15,000 to $25,000, said a DEA spokesman in Baltimore. They also seized 16 100-ounce silver bars, assorted gold and silver coins, and drug paraphernalia.

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of the resident, Antonio Donald Boston, 33, the spokesman said. Charges include possessing marijuana, possession with the intent to distribute, conspiracy and importation of marijuana. Mr. Boston was not at home during the raid, the spokesman said.

Narcotics agents acted on a tip from Arizona after state police there stopped a car and found 150 pounds of marijuana. The driver said the marijuana was being taken to the Annapolis address.
