OCEAN CITY — A 19-year-old city resident was arrested Friday after police found about 20 pounds of marijuana in his apartment, police said Tuesday.

At 5:29 p.m., detectives searched an apartment inside the Ocean City Housing Authority building in the 400 block of Haven Avenue, police said in a news release.

During the search, police seized about 20 pounds of marijuana, more than $11,000, drug paraphernalia, a vehicle and large quantities of edibles and oils laced with THC, the chemical responsible for most of marijuana’s effects, police said.

As a result, police charged Seth F. Wood with possession of marijuana over 50 grams, possession of drug paraphernalia, distribution of controlled dangerous substances, distribution of CDS within 500 feet of a public place and distribution of CDS within 1,000 feet of a school, police said.

He was released on a summons.

The search warrant was the result of a monthlong investigation into the sale of drugs from that location, police said.
