Dirt bike case leads to drug bust in Howard County

COLUMBIA, Md. - Howard County Police say an investigation into dirt bike problems led to a drug bust in Columbia. Officers had been investigating after noise complaints from the bikes were made about in the Owen Brown area when they discovered that a bike recently stolen through a transaction on the site OfferUp was listed again under a new name.

Police were able to identify the suspect as 19-year-old Deshawn Reed of Columbia. When officers arrested him and served a warrant at a home on Hickory Log Circle, they found not only the stolen bike but marijuana, rounds of ammunition, 70-vials of suspected crack cocaine. Evidence with the drug paraphilia led police to make another arrest, Faiq Matin of Baltimore.

Howard County Police want to remind residents of safe places to meet for online transactions:

Deshawn, you be dumb. Now you be candy.

OK I guess we're stereotyping again

Bet that the dirt bikes that the garbage around here are riding are stolen also. Been a epidemic of stolen dirt bikes all up and down the East coast. Because if they can afford to buy them, they can afford the tags. Then again they are most likely too stupid to pass the test to ride them. That's why we see people in the DMV taking the test on the computers doing so with their cell phones. Asking someone the answers to the questions, over the phone. And the officer letting them do it. As he is just like them. Saw this myself with my own eyes. The officer looking right at this young kid taking his test at the computer and talking on his phone while looking at the screen. And the officer just turned around and never said a thing to him.
