ANNE ARUNDEL, Md. — A man was arrested Thursday after the county’s heroin task force executed a search warrant on his home and reportedly found nearly $45,000 in cash along with several weapons, Oxycodone, heroin and heroin paraphernalia.

Police say they only found less than a gram of heroin, but the paraphernalia indicated distribution. Earl Colclough, 27, has been charged with several counts of possession of controlled dangerous substances, distribution, and charges related to his possession of firearms.

Detectives recovered cutting agent (a chemical used to dilute recreational drugs), 57 Oxycodone pills with a street value of $855, a 9mm Sig Saur Pro handgun they report was stolen, a shotgun, a .22 cal. rifle, and $44,461.
