David Anderson accused of running drug operation out of day care center
A Howard County man is accused of running a marijuana operation out of his home, which he also used as a licensed child care center.
Large quantities of marijuana were found inside David Geoffrey Anderson's home on Baltimore Street in Savage. Detectives found a room under the house that was fitted for growing the drug. According to police, the room had heat insulation, an elaborate electrical system with high-intensity lighting, a ventilation system and scented materials to mask the odor.
Marijuana plants, seeds and fertilizer as well as a loaded handgun, ammunition and several additional firearms were also found.
The licensed day care center has since been suspended by the Office of Child Care.
Anderson, 31, was released from the Howard County Detention Center on $35,000 bond. He faces several charges, including manufacturing, production and distribution of the drug. No additional charges have been filed, however the investigation is ongoing.
