On 12-21-2016, officers of the Frederick Police Department’s Street Crimes Unit came into contact with a suspicious vehicle in the area 208 Appleton Place, in Frederick City, after observing the vehicle’s rear hatch open while it appeared unoccupied.

Officers identified themselves and asked Allen for identification. 

While in close proximity to Allen, Officers smelled the odor of fresh marijuana coming from his person, which led officers to place Allen under arrest.  While trying to take Allen into custody, Allen threw an unknown item at one of the officers and then resisted the officers’ efforts to handcuff him.  Once Allen was handcuffed, he was searched incident to arrest.   This search yielded approximately 38 grams of marijuana and currency on Allen’s person.  A search of the vehicle that Allen was initially observed accessing revealed an additional 112 grams of marijuana. Also inside the vehicle were multiple cell phones, a digital scale and packaging material consistent with the packaging material used to package the marijuana found on Allen’s person.  In addition, this vehicle was found to be registered to Allen.
