[ARCHIVED] Street Crimes Unit Arrests Convicted Felon with Handgun and Cocaine

Murphy, Wayne

During the Month of December, members of the Frederick Police Department’s Street Crimes Unit began an investigation into Wayne Keith Murphy (DOB 04-05-1992) for distribution of cocaine. As a result of the investigation officers were able to obtain a search and seizure warrant for Murphy’s address at 1078 Carlton Place Apt TB.

On 12-27-2018, the Street Crimes Unit along with the Special Response Team served the search and seizure warrant. After the residence was secured, officers searched the apartment and located a quantity of cocaine packaged for distribution. In addition to the cocaine, officers located a loaded .32 caliber handgun. The serial number on the handgun had been purposefully obliterated making it impossible to read. Murphy was also prohibited from possessing the handgun due to being a convicted felon.

Murphy was arrested and transported to the Frederick County Adult Detention Center and charged with numerous offenses including possession with the intent to distribute cocaine, possession of a firearm during a drug trafficking crime, possession of a firearm with a felony conviction and knowingly alter a firearm ID number.

Murphy is currently being held without bond at the detention center.
