Salisbury Man Sentenced To 15 Years For Drug Charges

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - A Salisbury man is now behind bars after being convicted of drug charges in Wicomico County.

According to Wicomico County State's Attorney Matt Maciarello, Alexander Stevens, 34, of Salisbury, was convicted on Wednesday of possession with the intent to distribute cocaine, along with possession with the intent to distribute marijuana. A Wicomico County Circuit Court judge sentenced Stevens to 10 years in prison for the cocaine offense and five years in prison for the intent to distribute marijuana conviction. Maciarello says that the five year sentence will be served after the 10 year sentence.

The conviction comes after a drug investigation conducted by the Salisbury Police Department's Safe Streets Unit and members of the Maryland State Police Gang Enforcement Unit. Stevens reportedly had pending charges related to the investigation that culminated in a search warrant being issued for his person and house.

Prior to the execution of the search warrant, authorities say Stevens was seen leaving his residence while carrying a backpack before entering a cab. Reports say the cab was immediately pulled over by police, who found the backpack between Stevens' legs. During a search of the backpack, investigators found a large amount of powder cocaine, crack cocaine, along with marijuana which reports say were packaged for distribution.

According to reports, Stevens had previously been convicted of possession with the intent to distribute cocaine in 2009.
