The Frederick Police Department’s Street Crimes Unit conducted a traffic stop resulting in two arrests and the seizure of heroin and crack cocaine

On 01-12-2017, at 12:06 AM, an officer with the Frederick Police Department’s Street Crimes Unit observed a suspicious vehicle in the Frederick Shopping Center, located at 1305 W 7th Street, in Frederick City.

During the investigation into the suspicious vehicle, it was found the registration was suspended.  Based on the violation, a traffic stop was conducted on the vehicle.  While in contact with the driver and passengers, the officer detected the odor of marijuana emitting from within the vehicle. 

The driver and passengers were placed under arrest and subsequently searched.  During the search of the front passenger, identified as, Robert James Moran II, baggies of suspected crack cocaine and heroin were located in his jacket pocket, along with brass knuckles, and a small straw used for drug ingestion.  It should be noted the jacket that contained the controlled dangerous substance (CDS) was initially in a common area of the vehicle, which both the driver and passenger had immediate access to. Before the search incident to arrest occurred is when the passenger, Moran, placed the jacket on his person.  A search of the driver, identified as, Ryan Eugene Little, yielded no contraband; however, a glass smoking device and copper pieces (used to filter narcotics) were located within Little’s reach.  

Moran and Little were transported to the Frederick County Adult Detention Center for an appearance before the District Court Commissioner.
