23 pounds of marijuana seized in Suitland

An initiative to clean up crime in parts of Prince George's County led to the recovery of over 23 pounds of marijuana.

Officers also found more than $4,000 in cash and ammunition in Friday's search of an apartment in the 3500 block of Parkway Terrace Drive.

Police say they arrested and charged 28-year-old Leon Flythe with felony possession with the intent to distribute large amounts of marijuana and other drug charges. The known gang member is being held on a $60,000 bond, police add.

Suitland is one of the six neighborhoods being targeted by the Transforming Neighborhoods Initiative.
