Two Glen Burnie men arrested in large drug bust

GLEN BURNIE, Md. - Justin Smith thought the biggest danger around his home came with his two-year-old behind the wheel.  Nalah takes her toy Jeep for a spin, just up the hill from where police cruisers came to a screeching halt.

"You can't be comfortable dealing with that, you know you got your kids outside playing and you got drug dealers right up the street," said Smith. 

This started two weeks ago. Anne Arundel County police, along with the DEA, got a search warrant for 8051 Solley Rd. in Glen Burnie.  Several cars are parked out front, and toys are in the yard.

Detectives took out heroin, crack-cocaine, cocaine, and marijuana, which added up to more than $165,000, plus more than $172,000 in cash and a handgun.

"I would describe this as a very large amount of drugs to be taken from one residence on one search warrant.  Not unprecedented, but certainly in recent years probably one of the larger busts our agency has had," said Justin Mulcahy, Anne Arundel County police spokesman.   

Police have arrested a father and son who both live in the home, Alvis Fox, 57, and Tion Fox, 34.

"I walk past that house so many times, and it's crazy that all that was taking place there," said Smith.    

Alvis and Tion Smith face a long list of drug-related charges.  Police think this could cut down on the number of heroin overdose deaths.  So far this year, there have been 13 in Anne Arundel County.
