Drug Dealer Busted Because He Wasn't Buckled Up


On Sept. 29 at 1:15 p.m., Officer J. Timko conducted at traffic stop on a vehicle in the 2800 block of Crain Highway in Waldorf because the driver was not wearing a seatbelt. A K9 team was in the area and responded to assist. While conducting an exterior scan of the vehicle, the K9 detected drugs inside the vehicle. The dog and the officers searched inside the vehicle and found individually packaged quantities of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. The driver of the vehicle, Ottis Lowell Farmer, 23, of La Plata, was arrested and charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. He is being held at the Charles County Detention Center pending an appearance before the District Court Commissioner.
