[ARCHIVED] Frederick Man Arrested for Possession with Intent to Distribute Crack Cocaine (SCU)

Christopher Nathaniel Holmes

The Frederick Police Department’s Street Crimes Unit arrested a Frederick man for possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine…

On 04/06/2017, officers of the Frederick Police Department’s Street Crimes Unit were on routine patrol in the 400 block of W. Patrick Street. The officers noticed the vehicle in front of them had a cracked windshield at the driver’s eye level. As a result, a traffic stop was conducted at W. South Street and W. Patrick Street.


As the officers approached the vehicle they smelled a strong odor of Phencyclidine (PCP) emanating from within the vehicle. As a result, all vehicle occupants were removed from the vehicle and placed under arrest. The vehicle and all vehicle occupants were searched. It was determined the two passengers had just smoked PCP moments prior to the traffic stop. The driver and one of the passengers were released due to no CDS being found on their person or in the vehicle.


During the search of the other passenger, later identified as Christopher Nathaniel Holmes, a baggie of suspected crack cocaine was found in his right sock. The crack cocaine was found to be in small and large rocks, which is indicative of an intention to sell. In addition, Holmes possessed $661 in U.S. currency, which is also an indication of Holmes selling the crack cocaine. No crack smoking device was found in the vehicle. This further reiterates the fact Holmes was not utilizing the crack cocaine for personal usage but rather for sales.  

 

Holmes was transported to the Frederick County Adult Detention Center for an appearance before the District Court Commissioner.
