LA PLATA, Md. (AP) – Authorities say a Waldorf, Md., man has been charged with selling marijuana out of an ice cream truck.
WRC-TV reported Tuesday that a Charles County sheriff’s spokeswoman said deputies found bags of marijuana and a stash of cash in a truck operated by 20-year-old Alexander Hoskins.
She said officers acting on a tip stopped the truck at Bayswater Court and Sheffield Circle and a drug-detection dog alerted on the vehicle. They reported finding the marijuana and cash in Hoskins’ underwear.
“Ice cream or marijuana, you can take your pick with this guy,” said Diane Richardson, of the Charles County Sheriff’s Office.
He apparently had been dealing from the truck for some time, according to the Charles County Sheriff’s Office.
“We wish we got that call just a bit sooner so we could have found more drugs, but what we did find was significant enough to show that he had been dealing it, and for us, we’re removing a drug dealer off the streets,” Richardson said.
Hoskins was selling to teens and young adults through word of mouth, authorities said.
He was charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana and released on bond and out of business.
