Salisbury Traffic Stop Leads to Drug Bust

Posted:

SALISBURY, Md.- Maryland State Police say a weekend traffic stop in Salisbury led to the seizure of more than 4 pounds of marijuana and the arrest of the driver on drug, assault and related charges.

Police said that on Saturday night troopers from the Salisbury barrack conducted a traffic stop on a car that was driving erratically, nearly causing multiple accidents in Salisbury. Troopers stopped the vehicle at the intersections of Ellegood Street and Pemberton Drive. Police said that upon making contact with the driver, who was identified as 39-year-old Levern Antoine Reaves of Salisbury, troopers observed suspected marijuana in plain view within the vehicle as well as observing an open container of beer at the feet of the driver.

The driver got out of the car in order for the troopers to conduct a further search. According to police, located in the vehicle were two USPS shipping boxes containing more than 2,000 grams (4.5 pounds) of suspected marijuana packaged for distribution. Police said when troopers attempted to place Reaves
in handcuffs he resisted the arrest and attempted to flee the scene. Both troopers were able to gain control of Reaves and take him into custody, police said.  

Reaves and both troopers were taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center where they were treated and released for injuries sustained during the incident.

Reaves was charged with possession of marijuana, possession with the intent to distribute marijuana, possession of CDS paraphernalia, assault on a police officer, disorderly conduct, failure to obey a lawful order, resisting arrest and multiple DUI-related traffic charges. He is being held without bond in the Wicomico County Detention Center.
