HEROIN HIGHWAY TO HELL: Ex-con drug dealer Steavon T. Williams charged with dealing heroin used in overdoses of junkies
OCEAN CITY, MD – Ocean City Police report that they have arrested a man suspected of dealing near-fatal overdoses of heroin to local junkies.
Police say that in January 2019, detectives with the Ocean City Police Department’s Narcotics & Vice Unit began an investigation into a suspected drug dealer after two non-fatal heroin overdoses occurred on January 14.
Through investigation, detectives were able to identify the dealer as Steavon T. Williams Sr., 43, of 1801 Thomas Lane, Salisbury, Md. Detectives authored and executed a search and seizure for William’s person on January 19. During the search, detectives located large amounts of crack cocaine and a substance that appeared to be heroin. Upon further investigation, detectives determined that the substance was powdered sugar.
Detectives have charged Williams with possession of a controlled dangerous substance (CDS) with intent to distribute, possession with intent to distribute a non-controlled substance represented to be a CDS, and two counts of possession of CDS. Williams was seen by a Maryland District Court Commissioner and transferred to the Worcester County Jail on $5,000 bond. He has since been released from custody after posting bond on January 21, 2019, to allow him to return to his occupation of dealing heroin.
Following an arrest by Wicomico County Sheriff’s deputies in 2016, Williams entered an Alford Plea to a felony charge of dealing drugs on Nov. 29, 2016 and on Jan. 31, 2017, he was sentenced to ten years in prison with all but three years suspended. As this is the Alice in Wonderland Maryland Judiciary, of course, three years doesn’t really mean three years as one can see by the fact, he was back out on the streets dealing death in 2018 and 2019.
Worcester County States Attorney Beau Oglesby prosecuted Williams on drug dealing charges on April 2, 2003. THE OUTCOME: twelve years in prison with credit given of 337 days of time served.
