FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — A months-long drug investigation has led to the arrest of a Virginia man in Maryland.

News outlets report that 38-year-old Daniel Lawrence Curry was arrested Friday on drug and weapons charges. Frederick police said in a news release that Curry, of Ruther Glen, Virginia, had been under investigation since July following a tip.
