Three Suspects Arrested for Drug Distribution in Wicomico County

Salisbury, MD – Following a 4-month long investigation, the Salisbury Police Department have arrested three suspects for their involvement in drug distribution in Wicomico County, Maryland.

In April 2022, members of the Salisbury Police Department began developing information that 39-year-old Tereek Nutter, 40-year-old Jermaine Peters, and 40-year-old Dimitris Jackson were involved in the sale and distribution of narcotics. SPD’s Crime Reduction Unit (CRU) began to investigate the matter.

As the investigation unfolded, members of the CRU garnered additional information causing them to present applications for search and seizure warrants to a judge of the Circuit Court in Wicomico County for residential dwellings within the 500 block of Coventry Lane (Salisbury, MD), 1400 block of Chateau Drive (Salisbury, MD), 500 block of Halifax Court (Salisbury, MD), 200 block of Broad Street (Salisbury, MD), and 9000 block of Bi-State Boulevard (Delmar, MD).

The search and seizure warrants were signed by a judge and on August 30, 2022, members of the Salisbury Police Tactical Unit, along with members of the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Response Team, served the warrants on each of the residences.

As a result of the search and seizure warrants, police personnel located and recovered quantities of suspected CDS that included more than 1,500 grams of suspected cocaine, over 400 grams of fentanyl, just over 600 grams of marijuana, and an amount of US currency.

At the time of the search and seizure warrants, officers located Mr. Peters and Mr. Nutter at the residence on Coventry Lane. Both men were taken into custody without incident.

Mr. Jackson was located traveling in a vehicle in the area of Rt. 610 and Sheppard’s Crossing Road (Whaleyville) wherein he was stopped and taken into custody, without incident, by members of the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office.

All three men were transported to the Salisbury Police Department and later released to the Wicomico County Detention Center for initial appearances before a District Court Commissioner.

The Salisbury Police Department would like to thank members of the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), Maryland State Police, Office of the State’s Attorney for Wicomico County, Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office, Worcester County Sheriff’s Office, and the Ocean City Police Department for their partnership in this investigation.
