An investigation of illegal drug distribution was initiated by the Calvert County Narcotic Unit during the month of February.  Surveillance of a suspect culminated in an arrest for possession of a schedule II drug (cocaine) in a quantity sufficient to indicate intent to distribute. 

Acting on information supplied by the Narcotic Unit, Cpl. Anthony Moschetto, assisted by DFC Joseph Windsor, conducted a traffic stop on the suspect vehicle on February 20 at 3:50 p.m. at Md. Rt. 4 and Dares Beach Road in Prince Frederick.  Derrick A. Brown, 27 of Chesapeake Beach, was found to be in possession of 76.7 grams of cocaine, which has an estimated street value of $14,920.  

Brown’s  2001 Chevy Tahoe and $191 in cash was seized.
