A Burbank man and woman were scheduled to be arraigned on drug
charges Friday after the Glendale Police vice/narcotics team raided
their house and found weapons, cash, marijuana and several marijuana
plants, an officer said.
Phillip Head, 55, of Burbank was arrested Wednesday on suspicion
of selling and transporting marijuana and violating his probation.
Officers followed him from the Burbank home to one in North
Hollywood. There, he tried to jump over a wall clutching a cooler
containing a pound of marijuana after undercover officers observed
him selling marijuana out of the house, Investigator Craig Tweedy
Burbank Police assisted with the search and arrest.
After arresting Head, officers returned to the Burbank house and
arrested Tracy Maianwaring, 35, on suspicion of selling marijuana and
contributing to the delinquency of a minor, Tweedy said. They also
arrested her 14-year-old son, who was cited on suspicion of marijuana
cultivation. He was released into the custody of an aunt.
A search of the house produced two pounds of marijuana and several
thousand dollars in cash, Tweedy said. A loaded .380 semi-automatic
handgun, a .22 Ruger rifle and more than a dozen plants were also
found in the son’s bedroom, he said.
Officers searched a storage facility a few blocks away and found
about 70 pounds of marijuana, Tweedy said.
Head and Maianwaring were being held Thursday on $100,000 bail
each, Tweedy said.
