Frederick, MD.-On February 16th, 2018 at approximately 10:08pm, OFC. Ryan Stotler was on routine patrol in the area of Stone Gate Drive and Old Camp Road. During this time, OFC. Stotler conducted a traffic stop on a late model Acura for a brake light being out.

Upon contact with the driver, later identified as Carlos Valencia, OFC. Stotler immediately smelled the strong odor of marijuana coming from inside of the vehicle. As a result, OFC. Stotler had Valencia step out of the car to place him under arrest. As Valencia was stepping out, OFC. Stotler observed him attempt to conceal an item out of view. When OFC. Stotler asked Valencia what he was concealing, Valencia stated they were “shrooms” which refer to psilocybin mushrooms.

Once Valenica was placed under arrest, OFC. Stotler was able recover suspect marijuana over ten (10) grams and the “shrooms”. Valencia was then transported to the Frederick County Adult Detention Center's Central Booking Unit.
