Cops Find Drugs in a Double Cheeseburger
SALISBURY, Md. - Police say an alert drug-sniffing dog was not interested in a double cheeseburger but in the crack cocaine it concealed, leading to the arrest of three people Thursday night.
A Maryland State Police trooper stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation in Powellville, Md., about eight miles south of Delaware. During a search of the vehicle, a police dog detected drugs and the trooper noticed a fast-food bag in the passenger compartment of the vehicle with food inside of it. A search of the bag revealed an amount of crack cocaine hidden inside of a double cheeseburger.
All three occupants of the vehicle - Teresa Charlene Donaway, 47, of Pittsville, Robert James Eubanks, 39, of Berlin, and Davis Ray Manuel, 41, of Pittsville - were charged with possession of cocaine and drug paraphernalia.
All three were transported to the Wicomico County Detention Center, where they are awaiting a hearing with a commissioner.
