OCEAN CITY, Md. - Police in Ocean City say they arrested four men, after Officers reportedly witnessed a drug transaction.

The Ocean City Police Department says they had a Special Enforcement Unit working in plain clothes on Tuesday, around 1:00 AM, near 8th Street and Wilmington Lane. Those Officers reportedly saw a drug transaction take place in that location. According to the report, a man, later identified as 19-year-old John Hunt, of Easton, went up to a vehicle with three others inside, and tried to sell them marijuana.

Police say a uniform officer arrived on scene, and as they were walking up to the vehicle, it fled North on Wilmington Lane at a high rate of speed, while Hunt fled on foot. A description of the vehicle was sent out from Ocean City Communications, and the Acura was apparently stopped at 20th Street and Philadelphia Avenue.

The three people inside, Jerron Collier, 20, and Avante Roberts, 24, both of Princess Anne, and Kyle Dennis, 20, of Westover were all taken into custody. Police say a search of the vehicle recovered marijuana, and over $100 in cash. Hunt was reportedly found in the same parking lot, around 2:40 AM, and was arrested.

He was charged with possession and distribution of marijuana, while Collier and Roberts were charged with possession of marijuana. Dennis, the driver of the vehicle, was charged with possession of marijuana, resisting arrest and multiple traffic citations.

Hunt is being held on $5,000 bond. Collier and Roberts were both released on their own recognizance. Dennis is apparently awaiting an initial appearance with the Maryland District Court Commissioner.
