SUDLERSVILLE — Two Sudlersville residents were arrested after police searched a home here and found suspected cocaine, marijuana, and heroin.
The Queen Anne’s County Drug Task Force, assisted by the Kent County Narcotics Task Force and Maryland State Police, served a search warrant Dec. 8 on Sean Levar Hynson, his 2003 Cadillac and his residence at 109 Miller St., Sudlersville.
Investigators stopped Hynson, 46, and Nicole Lynn Carpenter, 29, as they were returning to their residence.
The search of the home revealed 48.2 grams of suspected cocaine, 8.6 grams of suspected marijuana and 68.2 grams of suspected heroin, police said.
Police seized the alleged drugs, cutting agents, a working digital scale, mail to Hynson and Carpenter at the address and packaging materials from their bedroom. Investigators also seized $487 cash from Hynson’s person and seized his 2003 Cadillac.
Hynson, who has a previous criminal history for firear ms and drug violations, was charged with possession with the intent to distribute narcotics, possession of controlled dangerous substances, and the possession of paraphernalia. He was initially held on $100,000 bond. Hynson posted bail on Dec. 9 and was released.
Carpenter, who has a previous arrest record for controlled dangerous substance violations, was released at the scene to care for her juvenile child.
On Dec. 16, she was stopped by police in Anne Arundel County near the Bay Bridge for an unrelated traffic violation and taken into custody. She was detained and later arrested for possession with the intent to distribute narcotics, possession of controlled dangerous substances, and the possession of paraphernalia. All those charges stem from the Dec. 8 search.
Carpenter is being held on no bond.
