WALDORF, Md. – On October 2 at 8:12 p.m., officers initiated a traffic stop in the area of Holly Tree Lane and Western Parkway in Waldorf after observing the driver of a passenger car fail to stop at a solid red traffic signal.

During the stop, officers detected the odor of marijuana and observed marijuana in plain view inside the vehicle.

A subsequent search was conducted and a handgun and loaded magazine were located in the vehicle’s center console.

Edward Devon Gadson, 24 of Waldorf who is prohibited from possessing firearms, was arrested and charged with possessing a firearm with a felony conviction, transporting a loaded handgun in a vehicle, and other related gun charges.

On October 3, a judge released Gadson from the Charles County Detention Center on the condition that he meets the requirements for electronic monitoring.

Officer T. Brown investigated.

  1. “Released with electronic monitoring”… he was already prohibited from having a gun, due to prior crimes.

    The was arrested for ignoring this and having a loaded gun and a loaded magazine…. So now he gets— a vacation at home and an ankle monitor…

    Ankle monitors won’t stop him from shooting someone if he wants to.
