DELMAR, Md. (AP) — A man is accused of running from a traffic stop in Maryland and throwing 300 bags of heroin into a backyard.
The Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release Wednesday that three people were in a car that was pulled over during a drug investigation Saturday in Delmar.
Cpl. Tyler Bennett says 32-year-old Lamerice Oney tossed the heroin and was later captured a couple blocks away.
A K-9 unit searched the vehicle and Bennett says another 80 bags of heroin were found, along with crack cocaine, a digital scale and money.
Oney, 46-year-old Terri Johnson and 27-year-old Katelyn Larrimore were arrested on drug charges. It’s unclear whether they had attorneys who could comment.
