Citizen complaints of CDS activity in the 300 blk. of Madison St. result in directed enforcement efforts by the FPD Patrol Division. This effort resulted in an arrest and the seizure of over 40 grams of suspected CDS Crack/Cocaine.
On 03-09-12 at approximately 1930 hrs. OFC. Auge and Off. Clark were working a plain clothes detail in the 300 block of Madison Ave. The officers were in the area due to continuing complaints from residents concerning drug activity there. While in the area they noticed suspicious activity around a Gold Honda Accord with Virginia plates that had 4 occupants inside. As the officers continued to monitor the vehicle as it left the area they noted a traffic violation while travelling north on N. Market St. @ Routzhan’s Way. The officers initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle and contacted the occupants. The stories provided by the driver and others inside the vehicle further aroused the officer’s suspicions that the occupants were involved in some type of criminal activity. OFC. Wade Milyard was summoned to the scene with his K9 to conduct a sniff of the vehicle. OFC. Milyard’s partner alerted to the presence of CDS inside the car. Further investigation into the incident revealed a small quantity of suspected CDS Cocaine in the rear passenger compartment of the vehicle. As the investigation continued CDS packaging material was also located in the rear of the car. Ultimately one of the passengers was found to be in possession of a large amount of U.S. currency, over 40 grams of suspected CDS Crack Cocaine and a digital scale with apparent Cocaine residue on it. The suspected Crack Cocaine was in a condition and quantity that indicated it was for distribution. The suspect was placed in custody and transported to Central Booking for processing and charges. He is identified as follows:
Of the 5000 blk. of Sugar Maple Ct., Frederick, MD.
He was charged with Possession w/intent to distribute Crack/Cocaine
Possession of Crack/Cocaine
Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (scale w/residue)
