A Maryland man who tried to outwit a Milford police officer has been arrested and charged with having more than 700 doses of heroin and 113 grams of cocaine in his vehicle on Jan. 19.
Peter P. Demarie III was pulled over for a traffic violation on North DuPont Highway, according to the Milford Police Department.
An officer asked Demarie to pull his vehicle up a few feet so that he could get his patrol vehicle off the railroad tracks, the police department added.
Instead, Demarie sped forward onto the grass of private property and around a building. He then stopped back on North DuPont Highway.
A police officer approached the stopped vehicle and could smell an odor of marijuana coming from it. A Milford police K-9 dog alerted on the vehicle and the officer found 4.7 grams of marijuana inside of it.
A search around the private property and building where Demarie had previously driven was then conducted and the officer found a grocery bag near the path of the suspect’s vehicle. It contained 701 doses of heroin and 113.7 grams of cocaine, the Milford Police Department said.
Demarie is charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance, two counts of possession with intent to deliver, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, malicious mischief by motor vehicle and other traffic offenses.
Demarie was committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution in Georgetown in default of $71,000 secured bond.
