2 men facing drug and gun charges

Two Maryland men were facing drug charges after authorities executed a search warrant at a Salisbury home on Sept. 15. The residence was located in the 1100 block of Nokomis Avenue.

The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office reported that its Community Action Team was investigating a case involving controlled dangerous substances when it executed a search warrant at the residence. When officers arrived, a 23-year-old Salisbury man allegedly attempted to flee, though he was quickly taken into custody by the deputies. A 32-year-old man was also taken into custody.

Authorities then conducted a search of the home. During the search, they reportedly found 74 grams of cocaine inside 56 individual bags, 6.9 grams of crack cocaine, 67 oxycodone pills that were in eight separate bags, digital scales and packaging materials. The authorities also said that they recovered two handguns, a shotgun and ammunition. As a result, both men were facing charges for possession of narcotics with intent to distribute, possession of firearms by prohibited individuals, possession of CDS and possession of firearms during a drug trafficking crime in addition to several other related offenses.

People face serious legal consequences if they are convicted on drug charges, including lengthy periods of incarceration and stiff fines. However, a criminal law attorney may launch an investigation into the case and look for instances where the allegations made by the prosecution do not match the police report or witness testimony. Further, the attorney may potentially have the ability to suppress some of the evidence if the authorities violated an accused person's rights while they were conducting a search that led to the seizure of the drugs.
