PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. – On June 26, 2018 Deputy Gott conducted a traffic stop in the area of Grays Road and Cypress Swamp.

He made contact with the driver, Matthew Adam Ward, 31, and the passenger, Julia Dee Ward, 32. The driver was issued paperwork for driving with no insurance and driving on a suspended registration. Matthew exited the vehicle and showed Deputy Gott a transdermal Fentanyl patch on his chest.

A search of Matthew’s person revealed a plastic bag filled with controlled medication that he did not have prescriptions for. While searching the vehicle, the passenger’s purse was located which contained a prescription bottle of Vyvanse that was not prescribed to her.

Both subjects were placed under arrest and transported to the Calvert County Detention Center where they were charged with CDS: Possession-Not Marijuana.
