Frederick, Md. (NS) – A Middletown woman has been arrested for transporting “large amounts” of fentanyl from Baltimore to Frederick.
The Frederick County Sheriff’s Office Pro-Active Criminal Enforcement (PACE) Team have charged 32-year-old Amanda Weddle for 10 counts of possession of and dealing “large amounts” of fentanyl and possession of crack cocaine.
On December 23, PACE Team members saw Weddle traveling on Interstate 70 to Baltimore and saw her return on I-70 back to Frederick a few hours later.
A traffic stop was made and Weddle admitted to dealing fentanyl. She also admitted to possessing fentanyl and crack cocaine that she had just purchased in Baltimore.
Officers found Weddle was in possession of 3.5 grams of suspected crack cocaine and 10 grams of fentanyl. 5 grams of Fentanyl qualifies as a “large amount” in Maryland.
Weddle admitted to officers that she traveled to Baltimore often to get drugs that she would distribute in Frederick.
She was taken to the Frederick County Adult Detention Center.
