OCEAN CITY — A month-long drug investigation culminated in a mid-afternoon Halloween raid on an Ocean City residence and the arrest of two local residents and the seizure of large amounts of cocaine and marijuana.

During the month of October, the Ocean City Narcotics Unit initiated a drug investigation on a residence in the ocean block of 41st Street. The investigation, which was initiated after a citizen tip was received reporting suspected drug activity at the residence, determined both Shakeim Fitzgerald Williams, 38, and Tiffanie Amanda Sunderland, 22, were both living in the residence.

Around 12:20 a.m. on Friday, the Ocean City Police Quick Response Team executed a search-and-seizure warrant at the residence and located Williams and Sunderland inside. Detectives also located around one ounce of cocaine with a street value of about $1,000, one ounce of heroin with a street value of $5,000 and a felony amount of marijuana.

Also located was around $500 in cash and hundreds of items commonly used to package and sell controlled dangerous substances (CDS). Williams and Sunderland were arrested at the residence without incident. They have each been charged with three counts of possession with intent to distribute CDS and possession of CDS.

Williams was also wanted in Worcester County for failure to appear for a previous CDS possession case. Williams and Sunderland were seen by a District Court Commissioner and have been transferred to the Worcester County Jail. Williams is being held on a $125,000 bond and Sunderland is being held on a $50,000 bond.
