Two men who were arrested Tuesday were transporting crack cocaine with a street value of $40,000 when a Maryland State Police trooper stopped them for speeding on Interstate 81, according to allegations in charging documents filed Wednesday in Washington County District Court.
Anthony Smith, 29, of Roxboro, N.C., and Davon Anderson Wellington, 27, of Nashua, N.H., were being held on drug charges.
Wellington also was charged with resisting arrest and obstructing and hindering.
He fled from police during a search of the car around 10:30 a.m., police alleged.
More than 18 state police and Washington County Sheriff's deputies helped track down Wellington near Hopewell Road. He surrendered without incident.
The bond on Smith and Wellington was raised from $200,000 each to $300,000 each on Wednesday. They were being held at the Washington County Detention Center.
