SALISBURY, Md.- The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office says a traffic stop in Salisbury led to the arrests of two people after deputies found crack cocaine in their car during a traffic stop. 

The Sheriff's Office reports that 54-year-old Eugene Purnell of Berlin, and 37-year-old Debra Ann Tawes, of Salisbury, were pulled over shortly after 5 p.m. Sunday at North Salisbury Boulevard at Northwood Drive for not wearing a seat belt.

Deputies said that after noticing some strange behavior on the part of Purnell and Tawes, the car was searched and crack cocaine was found.

Purnell and Tawes were each charged with possession of crack cocaine and released on unsecured bond.
