Abingdon man held without bail on heroin distribution charges – Baltimore Sun


An Abingdon man was ordered held without bail for allegedly trying to distribute heroin and other drugs in the Route 24/924 business area on Monday, according to charging documents.

Armahn A. Harris, 30, of the 3000 block of Raking Leaf Drive, allegedly sold heroin to two other people near the Holiday Inn Express off Route 24 in Edgewood at about 8 p.m. Monday, according to charging documents.

Deputies searched Harris at the Southern Precinct after finding a small bag with 0.4 ounces of marijuana on his person. At the precinct, 0.5 ounces of heroin were found in a bag and three more bags with suspected heroin were found, as well as $603 in cash, according to charging documents.

The 0.5 ounces “is sufficient for distribution,” according to charging documents, and Harris was charged with possessing narcotics with intent to distribute, distributing narcotics and possessing a drug other than marijuana.

It’s Harris’ second arrest recently for intent to distribute heroin, according to charging documents.

Assistant State’s Attorney Jennifer Bober told Harford County District Court Judge Susan Hazlett at a bail review Tuesday that Harris also has two convictions, including one for attempted armed robbery and one charge of violating probation.

He is also being indicted for possessing 0.8 ounces of heroin with intent to distribute, Bober said.

Hazlett ordered him held without bail, but said she would reconsider, if the indictment were to change.
