Salisbury man arrested on DUI, drug charges

SALISBURY, Md. – Wicomico County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested a man earlier this month on multiple drug and DUI related charges.

According to police, on November 7th, a vehicle was seen leaving a residence known for drug activity. Members of the Sheriff’s Office Community Action Team (CAT) were behind the vehicle while it was stopped at the traffic signal on E. Main Street and Route 50 and say the vehicle did not move at all during the cycle of the light. It was then learned that the driver, 31-year-old Desmond Dequincy Hollis Brown, was passed out behind the wheel.

A traffic stop was initiated and officers were able to wake Brown, who was reportedly startled by the detectives’ presence. At the time of the stop, Brown was holding a bag in his right hand that contained CDS, and was also found to be in possession of two wax bags containing suspected heroin, six wax bags containing suspected heroin residue, a plastic bag containing cocaine, a plastic bag containing heroin, and a dollar bill containing suspected heroin.

Brown admitted to being under the influence of heroin, and told police that he did not have his license because he had just gotten a DUI. A computer check revealed that Brown was charged with DUI back on September 21 of this year.

Brown was charged with possession of heroin, possession of cocaine, possession of controlled paraphernalia, driving under the influence of drugs, and driving while impaired. He is currently being held without bond.
