Narrative: On 14 February 2016 at 4:15 PM a deputy observed Franklin Donaway operating a motor vehicle on Deer Harbour Drive in the area of Devonshire Drive in Salisbury and was aware that Donaway’s privilege to drive a motor vehicle had been both suspended and revoked by the State of Maryland.

The deputy followed Donaway who failed to pull to the side of the road until Donaway reached a driveway of a residence that Donaway then pulled into.
The deputy placed Donaway under arrest for Driving While Revoked and subsequently discovered that the tags on Donaway’s vehicle, a 2000 Dodge Durango, had expired back in 2004 and did not belong to the Durango. In addition to the Durango being unregistered, Donaway did not have the required insurance either.
Donaway was transported to the Central Booking Unit where he was processed and taken in front of the District Court Commissioner. Following an initial appearance, the Commissioner released Donaway on Unsecured Bond pending a future court date.

Grant, Dean
Incident: Possession of Heroin and Cocaine with the Intent to Distribute
Date of Incident: 15 February 2017
Location: 200 block of Buena Vista Avenue, Salisbury, MD
Suspect: Dean A. Grant Jr., 30, Salisbury, MD
Narrative: On 15 February 2016 at 1:53 PM a deputy stopped a vehicle operated by Dean Grant after observing Grant make an improper turn. During the stop, observations were made by the deputy that raised suspicions that Grant was involved in illegal activity. A WCSO Drug K9 team arrived and conducted a scan of the vehicle which yielded a positive alert for the odor of illegal drugs. During an attempted search of Grant, he pushed two deputies away. As deputies attempted to restrain Grant in handcuffs, Grant actively resisted those efforts. Following a brief struggle, the deputies successfully detained Grant.
Upon a search of Grant, a large plastic bag was located in his underwear. Inside that bag was what the deputies identified as Cocaine, Crack Cocaine and Heroin. All of these items were wrapped in smaller individual baggies. Due to the amount of illegal drugs seized and their manner of packaging, it was evident they were intended for sale.
Grant was transported to the Central Booking Unit where he was processed and taken in front of the District Court Commissioner. Following an initial appearance, the Commissioner detained Grant without bond in the Detention Center pending a bond review in the District Court
