Ocean City Police Conclude Two-Week Drug Investigation

Posted:

OCEAN CITY, Md.– The Ocean City Police Department Narcotics Unit concluded a two-week drug investigation with the arrest of a Selbyville, Del., man on Saturday.

Earlier this month, detectives received a tip from a citizen indicating possible drug activity in the area of 141st Street and Lighthouse Avenue. During the investigation, detectives said they learned that Markis O. Leonard, 28, living at the home in question.

As a result of their investigation, detectives discovered enough evidence to obtain a search and seizure warrant for Leonard, as well as his vehicle. Members of the Narcotics Unit executed the warrant on Saturday afternoon after conducting a traffic stop on Leonard’s vehicle. During a search of Leonard, officers said they located over 170 bags of heroin and more than $3,100 in cash.

Leonard was charged with possession of heroin with intent to distribute. Leonard was seen by a Maryland District Court Commissioner and was transferred to the Worcester County Jail on $50,000 bail.
