Frederick Police make drug arrest

On 08-03-2014 at approximately 1510 hours, an off duty Frederick Police Officer was in the area of Woodville Rd. and Rt. 144, when he observed an RV being operated in a reckless manner, swerving in the roadway and nearly causing several collisions. The officer followed the RV from Rt. 144 onto Rt. 70 W/B and from there to the City of Frederick limits. The officer continued to observe violations and a second city officer along with 2 Maryland State Police Troopers were able to join him in the area of Rt. 15 and Motter Ave. and stopped the RV on the Motter Ave. ramp.

Further investigation revealed the operator of the RV to be in possession of a quantity of suspected marijuana. During a subsequent search incident to arrest, significant quantities of other controlled dangerous substances were found including Amphetamine, Methadone, Bath Salts, Oxycodone and Cocaine. The amphetamine, methadone and oxycodone, while legal prescription drugs, were not packaged or contained in appropriate containers, nor was there evidence that they were prescribed to the operator.
