Two charged with murder in drug deal gone bad
PARKVILLE, MD. — Baltimore County Police report that they have identified the December 26, 2014 homicide victim who was shot dead at the Welcome Inn as Aaron Phillip Nedd, 28, of the 8700 block of Loch Bend Drive, in Baltimore, Md..
The murder is one of many crimes that have taken place recently at the “1-star hotel” as it is described on the internet.
Police Investigation determined that two men came to Nedd’s apartment to purchase marijuana.
Police say that during the drug deal purchase, the men became involved in a fight. During the fight, one of the suspects shot Nedd multiple times in the victim’s upper body. The suspects fled after the shooting. Nedd was pronounced deceased at the scene by Baltimore County Fire personnel, just before 11:30 p.m.
Police continued their investigation and were able to identify the two suspects involved in the homicide.
The suspects have been identified as Peretz Darond Anderson, 30, of 5731 Edgepark Road, Baltimore, Md., and Mark Eugene Garland, 26, of the 5700 block of Edgepark Road, 21239. Anderson and Garland have each been charged with first-degree murder and are being held without bail.
A preliminary hearing is set for Jan. 23, 2015 in Towson, Md.
On Aug. 6, 2008, Anderson was charged with various counts of child abuse, assault and possession of a dangerous weapon. In Baltimore City District Court on Oct. 16, 2008 the Baltimore City States Attorney put all of the charges on the Stet Docket with no fine, no time.
Garland was busted for littering on a public transit making a murder charge quite a leap in his criminal career.
