CHESTER — A traffic stop June 26 resulted in drug charges for a Chestertown man.

Dfc. Austin Patchett of the Queen Anne’s County Sheriff’s Office stopped a vehicle on Cox Neck Road near Harbor driver. Police identified the driver as Shannon Boardley Jr., 30, of Chestertown.

Boardley was not able to produce any form of identification and additionally told Patchett he believed there was a warrant for him, police said. The warrant was confirmed.

Dfc. Joe Patikowski and his K-9 Tiger responded and conducted a scan of the vehicle, which resulted in a positive alert. Ultimately, Boardley was found to be in possession of capsules that contained suspected heroin, police said.

Boardley was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance-not marijuana; possession of drug paraphernalia and numerous traffic citations, including driving without a license, operating an unregistered motor vehicle, driving without current tags and having a light out.

He was released later June 26 on $3,000 unsecured bond. A trial is set for Sept. 14 in Queen Anne’s County District Court.
