Monday, April 7 – OC Probe Nets Drug Bust

OCEAN CITY – A two-month drug distribution investigation carried out by the Ocean City Police Department’s Narcotics Division resulted last week in a significant drugs bust in the resort.

The two-month investigation culminated in the arrest of Marvin Jefferson Mitchell, 24, of Ocean City, last Wednesday when an undercover OCPD narcotics detective purchased an undisclosed amount of crack cocaine from the suspect.

After the transaction, a search and seizure warrant was served at Mitchell’s Ocean City residence during which detectives seized 4.6 grams of crack cocaine, 14 grams of marijuana, two digital scales, $1,435 in currency and a Ruger semi-automatic 9mm handgun.

Mitchell was charged with distribution of crack cocaine, possession of crack cocaine and marijuana and possession of CDS paraphernalia. He is being held at the Worcester County Jail on a $50,000 bond.
