In Maryland, a Queen Anne's County Drug Task Force investigation has resulted in multiple drug charges for one Grasonville man. On April 12 at 10:30 a.m., authorities executed a warrant at his home in the 200 block of Grasonville Cemetery Road. According to news sources, the man is scheduled to appear in Queen Anne's County District Court on May 10 in connection with the charges.
Reports indicate that the man had allegedly distributed controlled substances from his vehicles. Entry to the 66-year-old man's residence was gained through an unsecured door. The subsequent search revealed 113 grams suspected powdered cocaine, 25.9 grams suspected heroin, digital scales, $5,666 in cash, packing materials and mail. In addition to these items, Queen Anne's County Sheriff's Office deputies seized a 2013 BMW 328i, 1989 Chevy Truck and 2013 Hyundai Sonata from the man's property.
The charges include possession of heroin with the intent to distribute, possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute, possession of heroin, possession of cocaine and possession of paraphernalia. The man's previous criminal history includes charges related to assault, firearms possession, drug possession and possession with intent to distribute. He has been detained at the Queen Anne's County Detention Center without bail pending his preliminary hearing.
A conviction on these charges could potentially have life-altering consequences. Residents as well as students attending college in Maryland who find themselves facing similar drug charges may want to seek legal counsel. Dependent upon the facts of a specific case, the attorney could work to negotiate lesser charges or penalties outside of the courtroom. In some situations, the lawyer may be able to identify deficiencies in the evidence that might ultimately cause the case to be dismissed.
