Salisbury man found guilty for cocaine distribution

Keion Williams, 20, of Salisbury, Md.

A jury in Wicomico County convicted a Salisbury man Monday on a charge of possession with the intent to distribute cocaine, the Wicomico County State's Attorney's Office announced.

The sentencing for Keion Ra'Quan Williams, 20, has been deferred until a later date, officials said.

On August 23, 2016, at approximately 1:30 AM, a state trooper pulled a vehicle over for driving without headlights. Authorities say the trooper smelled marijuana and initiated a search of the car, discovering 17 bags of cocaine and a loaded handgun.

The four occupants of the car were arrested and during a later search of Williams at the MSP barrack, police found 21 additional bags of cocaine in Williams' shoes, police said.

The vehicle's driver, Delquan M. Spence, pled guilty to possession with intent to distribute cocaine and is currently serving time in the Department of Corrections. The other two passengers were minors and processed through the juvenile system, officials said.
