Inmate charged with drug possession

An inmate at the Maryland Correctional Institution in Hagerstown was charged Monday after drugs were found in his mouth at the prison last year, Maryland State Police alleged.

Police said on Aug. 30, 1999, Bryan William Bates, 35, ran from authorities while being searched after an incident at the prison.

Bates was caught, and police alleged they found paper and plastic bags containing suspected drugs in his mouth.

The substance was turned over to a state police crime lab, where it was determined to be morphine and heroin.

Police said the delay in charging Bates was due to time needed to analyze the chemicals and file paperwork.

Bates was served a criminal summons charging him with two counts of possession of drugs.

He remains incarcerated at the prison on unrelated charges, police said.
