CUMBERLAND — On Friday at approximately 4:12 p.m., a Cumberland Police Department officer was patrolling the area of Williams Street and Elm Street when he saw what appeared to be a hand-to-hand exchange between subjects on the street.
The officer was able to contact a man involved in the exchange and asked what was in his hand. Brett Allen Denby, 28, of Mount Savage, was found to be in possession of suspected heroin. Denby was arrested at the scene and transported to police department for processing.
Denby was charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance, not marijuana, and taken to District Court for an initial appearance. He remained held, as of late Saturday, in the Allegany County Detention Center on a $8,500 bond.
