1280 Clint Smith

WILLARDS, Md. – A La Plata man is behind bars after he was found in possession of drugs and paraphernalia last week.

We’re told at around 8:30 a.m. on August 3rd, a deputy with the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office responded to a gas station in the 7000 block of Main Street in Willards, just off of Route 50, for a report of a possibly impaired motorcycle rider. On contact with the rider, 34-year-old Clint Smith of La Plata, MD, the deputy noticed that the motorcycle did not display a registration plate.

Further investigation revealed that the motorcycle was unregistered and that Smith’s privilege to drive a vehicle had been suspended by the State of Maryland. The deputy also uncovered two warrants for Smith’s arrest, stemming from theft cases in Charles and Anne Arundel Counties.

During a subsequent search of Smith, the deputy found several capped syringes, a digital scale, and heroin in a sufficient quantity and packaging to indicate distribution. In addition, Smith was found to be in possession of both cocaine and ecstasy.

Smith was arrested and charged with possession of heroin, possession of heroin with the intent to distribute, possession of cocaine, possession of ecstasy, and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was held without bond.
