Drug Enforcement Unit

On January 23rd members of the Drug Enforcement Unit were conducting a covert operation in the area of 1000 Heather Ridge Dr. Officers observed a vehicle enter this location. The occupants in the vehicle were observed to be engaging in suspicious behavior, consistent with persons attempting to buy drugs. Officers conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle after the driver committed a motor vehicle violation. A K-9 officer responded to the scene to conduct a sniff of the vehicle. The K-9 indicated a positive alert to the presence of drugs emanating from the vehicle. The driver was placed under arrest based on the positive K-9 sniff.

Officers observed crack cocaine on the lap of the passenger and he was placed under arrest. Additionally, a search of the vehicle yielded a pipe used to smoke crack cocaine. The driver Payne, Marvin and the passenger Moten were both transported to the Frederick County Adult Detention Center for an appearance before the District Court Commissioner.

Arrested: Payne, Marvin Oliver and Moten, Charles Lee
