FRUITLAND, Md.- A weekend traffic stop south of Fruitland has led to the arrests of two Colorado men on drug charges.

The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office said that shortly after 5 a.m. Sunday, a deputy stopped a vehicle for traveling 92 mph in a 65 mph zone on U.S. Route 13 at Stockyard Road. Police said that upon contacting the driver, 29-year-old Adam R. Gotchey of Denver, Colo., the deputy learned that Gotchey and his passenger, 27-year-old Sean Pierre LaClair of Dillon, Colo., were in a hurry to get to Virginia Beach, Va. The deputy also learned that the duo was traveling from New York City.

According to police, the deputy noted the absence of any luggage in the vehicle. Based on what the deputy deemed as suspicious indicators, a drug K9 team was called to the scene. During the scan, police said the K9 alerted to the presence of the odors of drugs. Police said that during the subsequent search of the vehicle, the deputy located hashish, marijuana and methadone. A search of LaClair's person revealed marijuana, investigators said.

LaClair and Gotchey were arrested and charged with possession of CDS and possession of drug paraphernalia. Both were ordered held in the Wicomico County Detention Center in lieu of $20,000 each.
