Anne Arundel County police released details yesterday about a recent drug raid - one of the county's largest this year - that netted nearly $63,000 worth of a powerful type of marijuana and nearly $30,000 in cash.

On Thursday, police executed search and seizure warrants on Glen Burnie residents Sung Hoon Koo, 25, and William James Tracey III, 24.

Police said they stopped Koo in his 1999 Jeep, for which they also had search and seizure warrants, and discovered 2,088 grams (4.6 pounds) of marijuana known as "kind bud." In "kind bud," the content of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive chemical in marijuana, is nearly 15 percent, compared with as little as 2 percent in lower, more common grades.

During a subsequent search at Koo's residence in the 500 block of Joy Circle in Glen Burnie, police recovered the cash, they said.

Police said they also searched Tracey's residence in the 1400 block of Crain Highway in Glen Burnie and discovered a small quantity of marijuana, a digital scale and smoking devices for illegal drugs.

Soo has been charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of a controlled dangerous substance. Tracey has been charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance and paraphernalia.

Police said additional charges may be filed.
