HEBRON, Md. - A Hebron man was charged with drug offenses, while being arrested on child support bench warrants. The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office says a deputy was arresting 45-year-old Richard Armstrong, on two outstanding child support bench warrants, when they smelled marijuana coming from the SE Railroad Avenue home.

According to the report, Armstrong admitted to smoking marijuana earlier in the day, for medical purposes, but said there was none left. However, while looking around, the deputy reportedly found marijuana, a smoking device, and other related paraphernalia in view on a top of a dresser.

The deputy then apparently looked inside of the dresser, and found more marijuana, after Armstrong said there would be more there. On the way out of the house, the Deputy grabbed a coat for Armstrong, and found multiple individually wrapped baggies of marijuana inside of the garment.

Armstrong was charged with possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, possession of marijuana in excess of 10 grams, and possession of drug paraphernalia. He is being held at the Detention Center on $20,000.
