CAMBRIDGE, Md.- Police in Dorchester County say they arrested two men after a Cambridge traffic stop led to the recovery of 169 bags of heroin.

Tramaine Rondale Thomas, 26, of Cambridge, and Keshawn Lenord Riddick of Seaford, Del., are charged with possession of heroin with intent to distribute and paraphernalia.

The Dorchester County Sheriff's Office said that on Thursday a deputy observed Thomas, who was wanted on numerous warrants, driving a car on a suspended license. Police said when the deputy tried to stop Thomas, he continued to drive until stopping in a driveway on Truman Street.

Thomas and Riddick got out of the car and were walking away when responding deputies called them back, according to investigators. They said deputies then found 169 individual bags of heroin in a Crown Royal bag.

The Cambridge Police Department assisted with the arrest.

Following their arrests on the aforementioned charges, Thomas and Riddick were ordered held on $75,000 and $50,000 bonds respectively. Thomas was also ordered held without bond for Circuit Court and probation violations.

    Proposed Roundabout for Wicomico County Intersection

    There is a intersection in Salisbury off Route 50 that has several roads leading into it and 12 traffic lights regulating it. 

    Mount Hermon Road, Long Avenue, Truitt Street, East Williams Street, and Main Street all intersect at one central location. 

    People in the community have mixed feelings about the intersection. Some say it should be left alone because it regulates traffic just fine while others say it is a nuisance.
