POCOMOKE CITY, Md.- Four drug raids in Pocomoke City resulted in the seizure of cocaine, marijuana, firearms and the recovery of stolen property, according to the Worcester County Sheriff's Office.

These search and seizure warrants, along with the indictments of several people from Pocomoke, stems from an undercover cocaine distribution investigation that has transpired over the last three months.

The following individuals have been arrested or currently wanted on an outstanding indictment.

  • Arron Brown, charged with possession of MDMA and two counts of distribution of cocaine
  • Marvin Handy, charged with possession of cocaine
  • Wayne Collins, charged with possession of cocaine and possession with intent to distribute
