Salisbury Man Convicted of Possessing Drugs with Intent to Distribute

SALISBURY, Md. - Authorities say a Salisbury man was found guilty of possessing several drugs with the intent to distribute them.

31-year-old Irving Henderson Jones was convicted on Wednesday by a Wicomico County jury of possessing fentanyl, alprazolam, and marijuana all with the intent to distribute the drugs, according to State's Attorney Matt Maciarello.

According to health officials, fentanyl is a narcotic used as part of anesthesia to help prevent pain. Maciarello says Fentanyl has caused numerous deaths across Maryland. Alprazolam is used to treat anxiety disorders, panic disorders, and anxiety caused by depression.

Maciarello says the charges against Jones arose out of his actions on June 19, 2014 when a car he was riding in was stopped for running a stop sign. The Maryland State Police say a trooper witnessed an interaction between the front seat passenger and Jones who was the rear seat passenger. Police say the trooper approached the vehicle from the passenger side for his safety and saw a plastic bag protruding from the front passenger's pants. The bag contained fentanyl, alprazolam, and marijuana. 

Police say Jones was found in the backseat seated next to a digital scale. They say he also possessed $1,004 in cash and two cell phones.

Maciarello says the facts at trial revealed that the bag belonged to Jones, who threw it into the lap of the front seat passenger and ordered the passenger to hide it from the State Police Trooper. The jury was able to conclude that based upon the quantity, packaging, and types of drugs, when combined with the scale, cell phones, and money found on Irving Jones, that he possessed all of these drugs for distribution.

Jones currently awaits sentencing in a previous conviction in 2010 of possessing heroin with the intent to distribute.
