A WCSH6.com report states that a Maryland man now faces drug charges after being busted for allegedly selling marijuana out of his ice cream truck. According to the Charles County Sherriff’s office, authorities received a tip through Crime Solvers on March 30 about the alleged drug sales and police stopped the truck at the intersection of Bayswater Court and Sheffield Circle the same day. With the help of a drug detection dog, marijuana was found by deputies in the vehicle, along with an undisclosed amount of cash in the ice cream truck driver’s underwear.
The driver, a 20-year-old resident of Waldorf, had apparently been selling drugs out of his truck for some time to both teens and young adults, who found out about him by word of mouth. He was also legitimately selling ice cream. The ice cream truck driver has been charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana. The WCSH6.com report says the man is currently “out on bond and out of business.” A spokesperson for the Charles County Sherriff’s office wishes they received the tip much sooner, but is happy that a drug dealer is being taken off the street.
