Salisbury woman arrested for resisting arrest, drug possession

1280 Tiara Thomas

SALISBURY, Md. – A Salisbury woman was arrested on multiple charges following a traffic stop last Tuesday evening.

At around 8:15 p.m., a deputy stopped a vehicle after discovering that it was being driven with registration plates for a different vehicle. After learning that the driver did not have a driver’s license, a computer check was initiated, during which it was learned that the driver gave the deputy a fake name and date of birth. It was not until the fourth version of her name and date of birth did the deputy learn the driver’s true identity as 36-year-old Tiara Thomas.

A search of the vehicle led to the discovery of cocaine related paraphernalia. A female deputy then began a search of Thomas and tried to retrieve a baggie hidden in her bra, however Thomas tried to pull away from the deputy and struggled against the attempt to search her. The deputy was eventually able to restrain her and pulled the baggie from her bra, which was found to contain cocaine.

Thomas was informed that she was under arrest, but she continued to try pulling away from the deputy and even tried to push back and walk away from the deputy. She was eventually taken into custody and charged with possession of cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia, obstruct and hinder, and resisting arrest, and was later released on a $2,500 unsecured bond.
