He’s Bad, Bad Leroy Brown,
the baddest man in the whole damn town
Badder than old King Kong
Meaner than a junkyard dog

DIRTBAG ROUNDUP: Beating a woman, endangering Delaware State troopers, and selling heroin land Salisbury drug dealer Steven McCormick Jr. in the slammer
LAUREL, DEL. – When tracking down one of the big tough guys who allegedly beat the stuffing out of family member, it fits right in that police might find said tough guy to be cowering the back seat of a vehicle in order to avoid discovery when eluding police.
Not only did the Delaware State Police find Steven Lawrence McCormick Jr. who was wanted for putting the whoopass on a woman, they report also finding a large amount of heroin.
The Delaware State Police say that they have arrested 22-year-old Steven L. McCormick Jr., of 105 McKinley Street, Salisbury, MD who was wanted in connection with a domestic related assault and reckless endangering of responding troopers.
Police say that on March 8, 2019, troopers observed McCormick leaving a residence in the 14000 block of Shiloh Church Road, Laurel in a silver GMC pickup truck. A traffic stop was initiated, and McCormick was located lying down in the back seat of the vehicle. He was taken into custody without incident and found in his possession was 124 bags of heroin, one Ecstasy pill and over $200.00 in suspected drug proceeds.
Delaware State Police report that McCormick was transported back to Troop 5 where he was charged with the initial warrants and new charges including the following:
- Theft of Motor Vehicle
- Malicious Interference with Emergency Communication
- Offensive Touching
- Two counts of Criminal Mischief
- Two counts of Reckless Endangering
- Resisting Arrest
- Vehicular Assault
- Driving Without a License
- Possession with Intent to Deliver a Controlled Substance (2 counts)
- Possession of a Counterfeit Substance without a Prescription
- Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
McCormick was arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court and committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution on $43,600.00 cash only bond.
Wildman Steve McCormick was charged on May 21, 2018 with multiple traffic charges by Maryland Natural Resources Police Officer N. Bradley when he stopped him on Rt. 392 at Nealson Street as McCormick operated a 2000 Buick Lacrosse. McCormick racked up citations for fleeing and eluding a police vehicle. McCormick failed to appear in court to answer the nine charges and he was suspended from driving in Maryland.
McCormick was also charged with possession of heroin and when he failed to appear, a bench warrant was issued by a Dorchester County District Court Judge for his immediate arrest on Sept. 19, 2018.
McCormick was stopped by Fruitland Police Officer Keith Newton on March 5, 2018, and charged with seven traffic violations such as displaying a stolen license plate on the 1997 Mercury Villager he was operating on Camden at Cartwright in Fruitland, Md. On Aug. 23, 2018, McCormick elected not to appear and his license to drive was suspended – not the only time that happened in 2018.
What really sets McCormick apart from a big part of the population is that he is a convicted and confessed drug dealer.
A slew of citations involving the failure of McCormick to bother with obtaining a drivers permit, insurance, or any other niceties such as tags or registration issued by Salisbury City Police Officer J. Doyle for events of July 29, 2017 at 10:31 pm as he drove a 2001 Honda at the corner of Vine and South Salisbury Blvd. in Salisbury, Md. In a plea deal with the Wicomico County States Attorney on Jan. 25, 2018, the charges were put on the Stet Docket.
What really sets McCormick apart from a big part of the population is that he is a convicted and confessed drug dealer. On Oct. 3, 2017, he entered a guilty plea to the crime of possession of drugs with the intent to distribute. The plea agreement for the felony charge with the Wicomico County States Attorney was yet another example of how drug dealers are not dealt with seriously in Maryland. THE DEAL: a sentence of two years with all of the jail time suspended except for sixty days. On a charge of driving without a permit, McCormick was sentenced to thirty days in jail. Twelve other counts were dropped. Predictably, McCormick violated the terms of his probation on Nov. 20, 2018 and a warrant was issued for his arrest, placing him in jeopardy of going back to prison for the remainder of his term.
