Police say that long-time drug dealing outlaw house was raided and Idrissa Turay charged with distribution
ASPEN HILL, MD. The Montgomery County Police report the arrest of an accused drug dealer in the Aspen Hill area of Montgomery County. The location of the home on Dunsinane Drive is conveniently located to Georgia Ave., Manor Club, Leisure World and the Gate of Heaven Cemetery. Police say that drug dealing has been taking place at the residence in a medium income neighborhood for several years.
For all those who are customers of Idrissa Turay, they will be relieved to know they can return to his alleged pot depot at 3818 Dunsinane Drive to negotiate great deals as he posted bond on April 29th and was released from jail. He needs more business in order to be able to pay his attorney.
The 4th District Community Services Unit reported that it has arrested and charged Idrissa Turay, 56, of Dunsinane Drive, with keeping and maintaining a common nuisance: his home, for the illegal distribution of marijuana.
Turay is the owner and a resident of his home on Dunsinane Drive. For the last several years, multiple police investigations have resulted in arrests of residents at his home for drug-related crimes to include possession and distribution of illegal drugs.
The Department has also received complaints from residents in that neighborhood that people at Turay’s home are selling drugs from the residence and are selling drugs in the parking lots and streets of the community.
Plain clothes officers have also observed drug transactions by residents of that home in the community and have arrested those residents for those offenses. Search warrants executed at that home during drug-related investigations have revealed evidence of the crime of drug distribution. This evidence has included drugs, drug paraphernalia, and a handgun.
Police say that on April 22, 2015, officers obtained a warrant for Turay’s arrest for maintaining a common nuisance. He was arrested and transported to the Central Processing Unit.
According to Maryland Court records, on Dec. 17, 2011, Turay was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and on May 14, 2012, the Montgomery County States Attorney dropped the charge.
On June 22, 2007, Mohamad N Turay of the same address, was indicted in Montgomery County Circuit Court for possession of firearms. A plea deal on the firearms charge led to a guilty plea by Mohamad Turay to wearing, carrying and transporting a gun illegally. He was sentenced by Judge J. Johnson to serve 364 days in jail with credit for time served and 18 months of probation. He later violated his probation and was found guilty of that crime. On March 31, 2009, Mohamad Turay was sentenced to another 279 days in jail but Judge Eric M. Johnson suspended all but 5 days. The bond for Mohamad Turay had been posted by Idrissa Turay.
The Montgomery County Police, according to court records, have been fairly unsuccessful in their investigations into Turay, given the lack of either multiple charges or resulting convictions.
Typically, the States Attorney or liberal judges are blamed for drug dealers getting off of their charges for distribution but in this case, it appears that the police haven’t previously produced any significant charges against him. However in their press release, the police point to the residence of Turay being a vast hell-hole and nuisance in the community.
The Montgomery County Police have an odd name for undercover drug cops. The agency calls it their Community Services Unit.
The court records show that the charges against Turay are related to acts of drug sales and outlaw housekeeping that allegedly occurred on Dec. 18, 2014 and that a warrant was issued on April 22, 2015. Turay must appear for a preliminary hearing on May 29, 2015 in District Court in Rockville.
