Thirty-eight grams of crack cocaine were seized by the Hagerstown Police Department in a sting operation, according to a statement of probable cause filed in Washington County District Court.

Willie "Chill" Clarence Mosley, 39, of 2 Broadway, Apt. 7, was arrested after police conducted the second of two alleged undercover drug purchases from him, a charging document states. According to a Washington County Detention Center deputy, Mosley was being held Monday night on $225,000 bail.

Mosley is charged with two counts of manufacturing/distribution of narcotics, three counts of possession of controlled dangerous substances with the intent to distribute narcotics, three counts of possession of controlled dangerous substances other than marijuana and two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia.

During a sting at about 4:30 p.m. July 18, a narcotics informant allegedly bought $100 worth of crack cocaine from Mosley, who was parked outside McDonald's on Dual Highway. In a second operation, an undercover police officer arranged to buy drugs from Mosley. The two allegedly met at 7:51 p.m. Friday at the AC&T gas station on North Burhans Boulevard, where Mosley was arrested after he allegedly sold the officer $150 worth of crack cocaine, the charging document states.

A search of the rental car Mosley was driving resulted in the recovery of almost $3,000 in cash, including the Washington County Narcotics Task Force money used in the second sting, three cell phones and 18 grams of cocaine, the charging document states. When police served a search warrant at a room in Days Inn on Dual Highway where Mosley allegedly was staying, they found a box of razor blades, rubber gloves, plastic bags, a shipping receipt and a shipping bag, the charging document states.

In a pair of size 48 denim shorts, police found 20 grams of crack cocaine, the charging document states.
