Two charged in drug sting

July 20, 2005

An undercover cocaine purchase in Hagerstown last week led to charges against two people, including a resident who allegedly allowed his apartment to be used for drug sales, authorities said.

After hearing complaints from people living around 422 1/2 W. Washington St., the Washington County Narcotics Task Force set up an undercover sting, the task force said in a news release Tuesday.

The task force set up a controlled transaction in which a confidential informant bought cocaine on July 11, the task force said.

Authorities said Tony Lamar Moorehead, 27, of 638 W. Washington St., delivered the cocaine to a second-floor apartment at 422 1/2 W. Washington St.

At the time, several other people were in the residence using drugs, police said.

Moorehead was charged with distribution of a controlled dangerous substance, possession with intent to distribute, possession of a controlled dangerous substance and conspiracy to distribute a controlled dangerous substance.

Police said a warrant was served Thursday on the apartment at 422 1/2 W. Washington St., three days after the controlled purchase.

Curtis Donnley McKee, 37, who lives there, was charged with maintaining a common nuisance, possession of a controlled dangerous substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police said McKee allowed his apartment to be used to buy and sell drugs.
