A former Laurel resident was indicted in Prince George’s County Circuit Court on Jan. 5 on 25 drug and weapons charges after county police raided a South Laurel apartment on Dec. 6 and found fentanyl pills and firearms.

Romel Johnson, 22, was one of three people charged after the raid. The other two were Dream Edwards, 26, of Columbia, and Michael Jordan Thompson, 34, of the District.

A police press release said the department’s gang unit made the arrests and found four firearms and 300 fentanyl pills at an apartment on Avebury Drive. The unit later discovered 3,000 fentanyl pills, three pounds of marijuana and an AK-47 weapon in two vehicles linked to the suspects.

In addition to drug possession and trafficking, the indictment charged Johnson with illegally possessing a machine gun, an AR-15 pistol and two Glock handguns.

Court records register different addresses for Johnson during the past two years, including on Barnesley Court and Ascot Lane, both streets in the same vicinity as Avebury Drive. The records have Johnson most recently living on Good Luck Road in Lanham.

Johnson previously had been charged with drug and firearms violations in 2022 and pleaded guilty to two of the charges in Prince George’s County Circuit Court in May 2023. He is scheduled for sentencing in that case on March 1.

His trial on the 25 charges listed in the indictment is scheduled for April 23.

Police request that anyone with information about the case should call 301.517.2900.
