Traffic Stop Leads To Drug Arrest In Easton

Posted: Updated:

EASTON, Md. - The Easton Police Department says a traffic stop led to a drug arrest on Friday.

According to reports, police attempted to stop a 2002 Chevy Monte Carlo in the area of Ocean Gateway near Dover Road for a driver, Keith Baynard, 48, of Cordova, talking on a cell phone. Baynard reportedly continued westbound on Ocean Gateway not stopping for the officer until the area of Route 328 near Ocean Gateway.

Police say Baynard advised that he did not have a license and that he was suspended. A record check reportedly revealed that Baynard was suspended, revoked, and had an outstanding warrant through Talbot County Circuit Court. Baynard was reportedly taken into custody.

Police say a search of the vehicle revealed suspected crack cocaine and Baynard was charged with possession of controlled dangerous substance not marijuana, driver operating a handheld telephone while motor vehicles in motion, driving on suspended license, driving on revoked license, failure of driver to stop upon being approached by police vehicle using signals, and failure to display drivers license on demand. He was reportedly ordered to be held on $5,000 bond at the Talbot County Detention Center.
