Major drug bust at Bethesda shopping center
A narcotics raid took place this past Tuesday, February 23, at Relaxed Nails and Spa in the Westwood Shopping Center on Westbard Avenue in Bethesda. Montgomery County Police are releasing few details on the operation at this time.
Witnesses report that both uniformed and undercover law enforcement officers were involved. A man was seen handcuffed in their custody outside the salon.
While I have obtained quite a bit of information about the incident from eyewitnesses and other sources, police are able to publicly confirm very few of those details at this juncture.
"The Montgomery County Department of Police, at the request of a federal law enforcement agency, assisted with the execution of search warrants in a narcotics distribution case," MCPD 2nd District Commander Captain David Falcinelli said Wednesday. He told me further details would be made public at the appropriate time in the future, and that the community should be assured there is no threat to public safety regarding this case.
