Three arrested in Manassas drug bust

The Manassas City police Emergency Services Unit, also known as SWAT, arrested a Manassas man and two others during a drug raid Aug. 8 in which $300 worth of crack cocaine and marijuana was seized, according to Manassas police spokesman Marc Woolverton.

The raid was the result of a month-long investigation by the joint Prince William/Manassas Narcotics Task Force.

Anthony D. Terry, 43, of Taney Road was being investigated “concerning the sale and distribution of crack cocaine,” Woolverton wrote in the press release. “On two occasions during the investigation, detectives conducted controlled purchases of suspected crack from the resident in the home.”

Police said the house was entered “without incident” at 9 p.m.

“At the time of the SWAT team’s entry, Terry was found in possession of a loaded .40 caliber semi-automatic pistol,” Woolverton stated. “Also found in the house was a shotgun.”

Terry was charged with “two counts of distribution of cocaine, possession with the intent to distribute cocaine, possession with the intent to distribute marijuana, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a firearm while possessing a Schedule II controlled substance,” according to Woolverton.

Terry is being held without bond at the Prince William/Manassas regional jail. A preliminary hearing is set for Oct. 25.

Two other people were in the home at the time of the raid, both allegedly smoking crack-cocaine, according to Woolverton.

Woolverton said Tracy Swedenburg, 31, of Philadelphia was charged with felony possession of cocaine and misdemeanor possession of marijuana.

Larry Reeves of Centreville, 51, was charged with felony possession of cocaine. Both Swedenburg and Reeves are being held on a $10,000 bond. Their preliminary hearings are set for Oct. 25.
