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.

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.

Caple is scheduled for a criminal court trial June 18 in Carroll County Circuit Court for her role in the December incident.

Motions hearings are scheduled for Sept. 1 for McCormick in the June and December cases.
