[ARCHIVED] Frederick Police Arrest a Man and Woman for Drug and Weapon Offenses during a Traffic Stop (SCU)

Norris and Strine

The Frederick Police Department’s Street Crimes Unit arrested a PA man and woman for drug possession and weapon offenses…

On 6/7/2017, at approximately 2321 hours, officers of the Frederick Police Department’s Street Crimes Unit were conducting routine patrol in the 900 block of W. Patrick Street. An officer observed a vehicle commit two traffic offenses (Unsafe lane change and displaying expired registration). As a result, a traffic stop was initiated and conducted in the area of Norva Avenue and Mary Street.

During the traffic stop, officers made contact with the vehicle driver and observed him to be visibly nervous, not able to make direct eye contact and unable to put together or complete a sentence due to his nervousness. A K9 unit responded and conducted a sniff of the vehicle. The sniff resulted in a positive alert for the presence of controlled dangerous substances (CDS). The driver, who was identified as Sean Andrew Norris, was removed and placed under arrest. During the search of Norris, a large switch blade style knife was located on his person.

The remaining occupants of the vehicle were removed and the vehicle was searched. Two “loaded” Heroin syringes, along with drug paraphernalia, were located in the front seat passenger’s pursue. As a result, the front seat passenger, who was identified as Gabrielle Rose Strine, was placed under arrest. The search of the vehicle continued and officers located a loaded Glock handgun under the driver’s seat.

Nothing further was located in the vehicle search.

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