OCEAN CITY, Md. - One drug arrest in Ocean City, leads police to a second, in the room next door. Ocean City Police say that on Friday morning, they arrested Jody Paull, 26, of Ocean City, for possession of marijuana. During her arrest, she reportedly told police that she was the caretaker of 37-year-old Brian Sterner, also of Ocean City, who was staying in the room next to hers.

According to the report, officers went to check on Sterner, at a hotel on Baltimore Avenue, where they were unable to get a response, but could smell marijuana coming from the room. Police say they found Sterner on the balcony of the unit, and initially they thought he was unconscious, but he eventually responded to officers. Once inside they say that they say saw a large amount of marijuana on his lap, so they arrested him.

They then searched the hotel room, where they reportedly found 23 ounces of marijuana in total, along with $604 cash, several items of paraphernalia, computers, ledgers, and phones. Sterner was charged with possession of marijuana, possession with intent to distribute and distribution of marijuana. He was later released.
