A Hampstead man awaiting trial in two drug cases is being held without bond after a search of his home Thursday allegedly uncovered more evidence of oxycodone distribution.
Daniel Joseph McCormick, 28, of the 900 block of S. Main St., is charged with possession of drugs with the intent to distribute, possession of drugs and possession of paraphernalia, according to electronic court files.
McCormick will be held without bond at the Carroll County Detention Center pending a bail review hearing scheduled for Monday.
Members of the Carroll County Drug Task Force searched McCormick's residence at about 10:30 a.m. Thursday, according to charging documents. McCormick was located in the residence and searched.
Police found in his pockets nine oxycodone tablets and $1,400 in cash, according to the documents.
McCormick told investigators there were additional prescription medications behind his bed, and they found a plastic bag of 100 oxycodone pills behind the bed and $7,585 in cash under the mattress, according to the documents.
After waiving his Miranda rights, McCormick told investigators the drugs and money belonged to him, not the other occupant of the residence, according to the documents.
McCormick was arrested in June and charged with possession of a narcotic with the intent to distribute, keeping a common nuisance by illegally distributing drugs, possession of drugs and possession of paraphernalia, according to electronic court files.
In December, McCormick was arrested along with Dorothy Elizabeth Caple, 40, of the unit block of George Street in Taneytown, after a drug task force investigator saw Caple distribute a large number of oxycodone tablets to McCormick, according to court records.
Further investigation indicated Caple was a middle person and McCormick would later distribute the drugs, according to court records.
