Alert citizen report leads to seizure of suspected heroin in Bel Air

November 25, 2013|AEGIS STAFF REPORT

Sheriff's deputies tipped off by an alert citizen seized 32 capsules of suspected heroin from a car in the parking lot at Home Depot in Bel Air, police said.

Around 1 p.m. Thursday, off-duty DFC Charles Sadokski was flagged down by a person at the store at 655 Marketplace Drive; the person reported a suspicious vehicle in the parking lot – the vehicle's license plates were covered in black tape, obscuring the license plate numbers.

Deputies Matt Schueler and Stavros Kalambihis approached the car and spoke to Dawn Renee Jones, 46, of the 2600 block of Wycliff Road in Baltimore. As police were speaking to Jones, a man identified as Randy Craig Hubbe, 47, of the 8700 block of Summit Avenue in Baltimore, approached the deputies and acknowledged he was the owner of the 2007 Ford.

A further check of the car showed the license plates had expired and neither Hubbe nor Jones had a valid license. Hubbe was told the vehicle could not be driven and would have to be towed. As deputies began taking inventory of the vehicle, they said, they found 32 clear capsules containing suspected heroin.

Jones and Hubbe were charged with drug possession and drug possession with intent to distribute. Hubbe was also charged with several traffic offenses.

Hubbe was ordered held in lieu of $10,000 Jones on $7,500 bail.
