GRASONVILLE — A Grasonville man faces multiple drug charges after members of the Queen Anne’s County Drug Task Force served a warrant at his residence at 200 Grasonville Cemetery Road at 10:30 a.m. April 12. Entry was made through an unlocked door.

Deputies searched Donald Rayfield Handy, 66, and his residence, seizing 25.9 grams suspected heroin, 113 grams suspected powdered cocaine, working digital scales, $5,666 in cash, packing materials and mail, according to the Queen Anne’s County Sheriff’s Office. Their investigation indicated Handy had been distributing drugs from his vehicles, so three vehicles also were seized — a 2013 BMW 328i, a 1989 Chevy Truck and a 2013 Hyundai Sonata.

Handy, who has a previous criminal history for drug possession, possession with with intent to distribute, firearms possession and assault, was charged with possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute, possession of heroin with the intent to distribute, possession of cocaine, possession of heroin and possession of paraphernalia.

Handy is being held without bail at the Queen Anne’s County Detention Center. A preliminary hearing is set for May 10 in Queen Anne’s County District Court.

“We will continue to hunt down the drug dealers in our community. We will not tolerate anyone who sells or distributes drugs. We will continue to work with all of our allied agencies to arrest these individuals,” said Sheriff Gary Hofmann.
