Montgomery County police arrested an Olney man as a part of an ongoing drug investigation, authorities announced.

Members of Montgomery County's Police Community Action Team pulled over 20-year-old Fadhl Hassan Dean, of the 18200 block of Fountain Grove Way, after he committed a traffic violation on Thursday, according to police.

A K9 unit found nearly two pounds of marijuana in the vehicle, police said.

A search of Dean's home later that evening turned up more marijuana and an undisclosed amount of cash, which police believe Dean made as profit from drug sales.

Dean was charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute.
