East New Mar­ket man faces drug charge after traf­fic stop

The Star Democrat - - LOCAL -

EAS­TON — Eas­ton po­lice on Wed­nes­day, Oct. 31, ar­rested an East New Mar­ket man on a drug charge dur­ing a traf­fic stop.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, of­fi­cers in the area of U.S. Route 50 and Dutch­mans Lane saw a green Mazda head­ing east on Route 50, speed­ing and with ex­pired reg­is­tra­tion plates.

Po­lice said the of­fi­cers stopped the ve­hi­cle, and dur­ing the stop, a K9 scan led to the re­cov­ery of the drug Subox­one from a pas­sen­ger, iden­ti­fied as Justin Scott Cook, 37, of East New Mar­ket.

Cook was charged with pos­ses­sion of a con­trolled dan­ger­ous substance (not mar­i­juana), taken be­fore a Tal­bot County District Court com­mis­sioner and re­leased on per­sonal re­cog­ni­zance.
