Drugs found in man’s underwear, three charged

WICOMICO CO., Md. – Police say three men are facing charges after drugs were found in their car during a traffic stop, early Saturday morning.

According to Maryland State Police, Raquan Williams was pulled over at 2:23 a.m. in the area of Rt. 13 north of Old Eden Road for making an unsafe lane change and negligent driving. The trooper reportedly saw marijuana on the 21-year-old’s sweater and asked about it. Williams apparently said “he didn’t know why the marijuana was on his clothing” but then told the officer that he smoked marijuana earlier that day.

The officer searched Williams’ car and reportedly found 35 baggies of marijuana (30.2 grams), 16 vials of cocaine (7 grams), a digital scale, a ceramic plate and a razor blade with cocaine residue.

The front seat passenger was identified as 20-year-old Montaz Wright and the back seat passenger was identified as 21-year-old Brandon Lee, both from Baltimore. The driver, who is from Essex, and both passengers reportedly told police they didn’t know the drugs were in the car.

Williams, Wright and Lee were arrested and are charged with possession with intent to distribute (cocaine and marijuana), possession CDS (cocaine and marijuana) and possession CDS paraphernalia. Williams was also charged with DUI after poor performance on field sobriety tests.

After Williams was arrested, police found another 8 baggies of marijuana in his pants pockets (6.5 grams) and a baggie of cocaine in his underwear.

All three suspects were held without bond at the Wicomico County Detention Center.
