On February 13, 2014, Joseph Allen Waltemeyer, Sr., age 47, of Delmar, Maryland, was convicted and sentenced on one count of possession with the intent to distribute heroin. A Wicomico County Circuit Court judge sentenced Waltemeyer to ten years of active incarceration in the Maryland Division of Corrections.
Waltemeyer had been pending charges related to a drug investigation conducted by members of the Salisbury Police Department’s Safe Streets Unit and members of the Maryland State Police Gang Enforcement Unit. This investigation culminated in Waltemeyer’s arrest on October 8, 2013, outside of a business in Hebron, Maryland. During a search of Waltemeyer’s vehicle, investigators discovered 39 separate baggies containing heroin. Waltemeyer admitted to investigators that he intended to sell the heroin.
Wicomico County State’s Attorney Matthew A. Maciarello commended the Salisbury Police Department’s Safe Streets Unit and the Maryland State Police Gang Enforcement Unit for their work in the investigation and prosecution of this case. Mr. Maciarello also thanked James L. Britt who prosecuted Waltemeyer.
