Wicomico County Man Given 5-Year Sentence for Drug Possession

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.– Authorities say a Wicomico County man has been sentenced to five years behind bars for the possession of drugs.

Prosecutors with the Wicomico County State's Attorney's Office on Friday announced that a jury found 49-year-old Troy Curtis Connors guilty of possessing heroin, stemming from an incident on Feb. 7, 2013. On that day, Maryland State Police went to a home in Wicomico County for a reported heroin overdose. Troopers said they found Connors inside wearing a blue coat. A short time later Connors took the coat off and hung it on a rack and moved away from it. During their investigation, troopers said they found three syringes, cotton balls and heroin in the coat pockets.

In front of the jury, Connors said the coat belonged to him, but he was unable to explain the presence of the drugs and needles in the pockets, according to prosecutors.

The jury found Connors guilty after three minutes of deliberation. He was determined to be a subsequent offender under Maryland law and was sentenced to five years in the Division of Corrections.
