A convicted drug dealer was sentenced to 10 years in prison this week for cocaine-related charges. Stemming from a March arrest in Worcester County, the 27-year-old Maryland resident (who has a prior drug charge for crack cocaine possession) was found guilty of cocaine possession with intent to distribute.
The Maryland State Police arrested the man earlier this year when, after a short chase, police officers found the man in possession of a large plastic bag with three smaller bags containing crack cocaine. At the time, the suspect fled his car to try avoiding law enforcement, but the vehicle was never placed in park; the moving car eventually hit a rail guard on Route 113. A later inspection of the car produced even more drugs.
