Marijuana seized from family home of city police sergeant

November 21, 2009

The 21-year-old son of a Baltimore police sergeant was arrested Thursday night after officers raided the family's rowhouse in the 1000 block of N. Luzerne Ave. and found a half-pound of marijuana, the department's chief spokesman said. The sergeant, who was not identified but is assigned to the Northern District, has been placed on desk duty. Spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said an internal investigation is being conducted to determine whether the officer knew about the drugs and whether drugs were being dealt from the house. Guglielmi said the suspect, identified as Jonathan Dixon, lived in the basement and that police found the drugs in a nightstand next to his bed. He said police also seized $500.
