SALISBURY, Md.- Authorities say a traffic stop in Salisbury led to the arrests of two Delaware men accused of dealing heroin.

The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office said that shortly after noon on New Year's Day, a deputy stopped a vehicle operated by Iantae M. Albury, 19, of Seaford, Del., for a moving violation on Lake Street. The sheriff's office said that upon coming into contact with Albury and his passenger, Leon L. Mann, 18, of Bridgeville, Del., the deputy smelled marijuana.

Investigators said that after Albury and Mann were ordered to get out of the vehicle, Mann was observed attempting to discard some items. Inspection of these items reveled them to be wax folds that held what was identified as heroin, according to the sheriff's office.

Investigators said that ultimately Albury was found to have more than 200 wax folds containing what was identified as heroin in his possession, along with a scale. Albury was also discovered to have two individually wrapped baggies of crack cocaine in his possession, according to the sheriff's office. 

Where the traffic stop occurred was within 1,000 feet of an elementary school.
The deputy placed both Albury and Mann under arrest. Both men were charged with possession of heroin with the intent to distribute, possession of crack cocaine with the intent to distribute, possession of heroin with the intent to distribute in a school zone and possession of crack cocaine with the intent to distribute in a school zone. 

Both men are being held without bond in the Wicomico County Detention Center.
