CRUMPTON — A Church Hill man faces charges of dis­tribut­ing heroin af­ter a three-month in­ves­ti­ga­tion by the Queen Anne’s County Drug Task Force that cul­mi­nated in two ar­rests.

In Au­gust, the Task Force re­ceived in­for­ma­tion that Colin Con­nor Craw­ford-Golds­boro, 24, was sell­ing heroin from his girl­friend’s Andrew Drive res­i­dence in Crumpton, po­lice said.

Dur­ing the sub­se­quent in­ves­ti­ga­tion, an un­der­cover of­fi­cer act­ing in a covert ca­pac­ity made con­tact with Golds­boro and pur­chased heroin di­rectly from him on sev­eral oc­ca­sions in Septem­ber and October, po­lice said.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors, led by Tfc. Kyle Braight­meyer, ob­tained an ar­rest war­rant charg­ing Golds­boro with sev­eral counts of dis­tri­bu­tion of heroin. They also ob­tained a search and seizure war­rant for his res­i­dence.

On Oct. 10, mem­bers of the Task Force, as­sisted by the Queen Anne’s County Sher­iff’s Of­fice Tac­ti­cal Team and uni­formed state troop­ers served the war­rant at 13 Andrew Drive.

Craw­ford-Golds­boro, his girl­friend Donna Ruth and sev­eral other peo­ple were home when the war­rant was served, po­lice said.

The search re­sulted in the seizure of a small amount of heroin, sev­eral Tra­madol pills and 1.1 grams of PCP from in and around the res­i­dence, po­lice said.

Craw­ford-Golds­boro was charged with sev­eral counts of dis­tri­bu­tion of heroin, pos­ses­sion of heroin with the in­tent to dis­trib­ute, pos­ses­sion of heroin and pos­ses­sion of drug para­pher­na­lia. Po­lice said he has a crim­i­nal his­tory for drug vi­o­la­tions. Craw­ford-Golds­boro was held on no bond. His pre­lim­i­nary hear­ing is set for Nov. 9.
