Bail unchanged for two charged in series of drug sales

August 12, 2010|By DON AINES

A Hagerstown man and woman charged with taking part in a series of drug sales to an informant for the Washington County Narcotics Task Force sought to have their bail reduced Thursday in Washington County District Court.

Darrol Chris Sands and Pamela Renee Kitchen, in bond review hearings before District Judge Dana Moylan Wright, saw their bail remain unchanged. Wright left Sands' bail at $300,000 and Kitchen's at $150,000, according to court records.

"My wife and kids will be on the street," Sands said, asking Wright to reduce his bail because his family depended on his income.

Sands, 42, of 457 W. Washington St., Apt. 5, is charged with five counts each of distribution of narcotics, conspiracy to distribute narcotics and possession of narcotics, and four counts of possession of drug paraphernalia, according to the statement of charges filed by a task force agent.

Kitchen, 32, of 112 Manor Drive, Apt. 3, is charged with three counts each of distributing narcotics, conspiracy to distribute narcotics, possession of narcotics and possession of drug paraphernalia, court records said.

A task force informant went to the Pilot Truck Stop on Greencastle Pike on May 21 as Sands was getting off work, according to the application for statement of charges in the case. The informant offered Sands a ride and asked about buying crack cocaine, the application said.

Police allege Sands took part in drug transactions involving the informant on that date, as well as on July 2 and Aug. 2, 3, 4 and 6, at different locations in Hagerstown, the application said. Kitchen was involved in the transactions on May 21, July 2 and Aug. 4, according to the application.

Sands and Kitchen are scheduled to have preliminary hearings Sept. 7, court records show.
