Reyes was allegedly bringing a large quantity of powder cocaine to Talbot County. Santiago Martinez-Herrera reportedly transported Reyes to Talbot County with the cocaine. As Reyes and Herrera arrived at the location, troopers say they were intercepted and found to be in possession of 74.9 grams of powder cocaine, an estimated street value of $6000, $1,315 in US currency, and a 2006 Dodge Charger.
