The Frederick Police Department’s Street Crimes Team arrested two males for the possession of heroin, crack cocaine and marijuana with the intent to distribute
On 04-08-2016, officers of the Frederick Police Department’s Street Crimes Team conducted a traffic stop in the 400 block of Heather Ridge Drive, in Frederick City, after observing numerous traffic violations from a vehicle travelling in front of them.
Once the traffic stop was initiated, officers observed the vehicle to quickly stop and the driver to exit, fleeing on foot. After a brief foot chase, the driver was apprehended and identified as, Tabius Jymeal Bowie. It should be noted there was a time during the foot chase when Bowie stopped running and was observed pulling up his pant leg and reaching for something in the area of his lower legs. It was in this area where Bowie stopped that officers located twelve (12) individually wrapped baggies of crack cocaine. In addition, during the search incident to arrest of Bowie over $1400 was located on his person.
A second person, identified as, Anthony Darnell Beckwith, was detained and arrested inside of the initial vehicle after officers detected the strong odor of marijuana emitting from inside. Beckwith was the passenger of the vehicle. During a search incident to arrest of Beckwith, officers located approximately 12 grams of marijuana and five (5) heat sealed straws of suspected heroin concealed in the area of Beckwith’s groin.
Based the amount of crack cocaine, marijuana, heroin and currency possessed between Bowie and Beckwith, who were the sole occupants of the vehicle, it is believed the contraband was possessed with the intent to distribute.
Bowie and Beckwith were transported to the Frederick County Adult Detention Center for an appearance before the District Court Commissioner.
